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.
