GRITS 2014

October 7, 2014 2:20 am | By RoboJackets

The RoboJackets had their hands full at the sixth annual Georgia Robotics Invitational Tournament and Showcase (GRITS). On October 4, members from our Outreach group and the competition teams volunteered as staff to help put on Georgia’s off-season FIRST event.

Our members kept the competition field running, helped oversee safety in the competition pit areas, and worked with rookie groups of students to compete in last year’s FRC game, Aerial Assist. The event was a great opportunity for new students to whet their appetite for competition robotics as they gear up for the upcoming FRC season. We look forward to helping out with the coming year’s game as event coordinators, volunteers, and mentors.
