The annual BunnyBots competition is one of the highlights of the FRC off-season for 24 teams in the NW. It expands the boundaries of the 6-week build season to help make FIRST more of a year-round activity. Each year, Flaming Chicken alumni and mentors design the rules for an original game and provide the primary volunteer force to run the event. We believe the best way to learn how to build FRC robots is to actually build FRC robots. Learning those skills in the fall, when the stakes are lower and time more relaxed, is a great way to get ready for the Winter build season. The result is a less chaotic build season with robots built more by students and less by mentors. For many students, this is their first experience making a FRC-quality robot.
Introducing the 2015 BunnyBots game…Danger Zone!
Danger Zone is played by two alliances of three robots each. After a 10 second autonomous period, the 2:20 teleoperation period begins. During teleop, robots attempt to score as many touchdowns as possible by transporting foam footballs the length of the field to the alliance’s end zone. Additional points are awarded depending on how the scoring robot acquired the ball. Additionally, three stuffed bunnies start off in each alliance’s home zone. Bunnies score 10 points each in each alliance’s end zone at the end of the match.
