Each year as part of the FIRST Robotics Competition, Team 228 must build an entirely new robot from scratch. Six long weeks of designing, machining, fabricating, wiring, and programming go into the creation of our team's robots. When the robot is shipped at the end of each build season, we are hardly done. We always seek to improve our robots, to add new features, to make our drive trains faster, our arms more powerful, and our programming more extensive during the official Fix-It windows or after the competitions during the post-season.

It appears that there haven't been any robots completed for the 2014 season yet. The most likely cause of this error is that either the FRC Kickoff Event has not yet occured, or that our robot is still being designed and built. Until we perfect our flux capacitor technology, you'll have to wait a bit longer to learn more about our current robot(s).
About the Kit Of Parts
Every year immediately following the FRC Kickoff Event, every FRC team receives a standard Kit Of Parts. Contained in two totes, this single Kit contains enough motors, wheels, pneumatics, and electronics to build a basic robot. From this, teams can add additional components or raw materials, such as gears, roller chain, timing belts, aluminum, or polycarbonate (to name a few common additions) as governed by the game manual to build their final robot.
