2015 - Recycle Rush

The Game

Recycle Rush is a completely different game for FRC. This game is played with little interaction between oposing alliances. The goal is to stack totes with a recycling container on top. Matches are still two-and-a-half minutes long, starting with a 15 second auto period followed by a 2:15 minute tele-operated period.
In middle of the field, four special yellow totes can be stacked to form a "Coopertition Stack" with bonus points. The event ranking system is different, too. This year, there are no winners of matches, and the seed rank is based on average points scored. The elimination bracket is now called "Playoffs" where the highest ranking alliances advance through quarterfinals, semifinals, and onto finals, where the winner is finally determined.

Our Team


Our team is comprised of 48 students,  20 volunteer mentors from industry, and our teacher and coach Robert Steele.

Our Robot

“Skunk-Mode” is a mecanum drive robot, with mecanum can manipulators, a motorized tote elevator, and a pneumatic can stabilizer. The robot can autonomously acquire 1 can from the center beam and another in teleop period. If not grabbing cans autonomously, one can was picked up during autonomous period. Skunk-mode reliably created two stacks of 6 totes with a can and a noodle.
