The FIRST Game
FIRST Stronghold is the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition game. The game is played by two alliances of three teams each, and involves breaching the opponents’ defenses, known as outer works, and capturing their tower by first firing "boulders" at it and then surrounding or scaling the tower using rungs. Points are scored by crossing elements of the tower's outer works, shooting boulders into the opposing tower's five goals in order to lower the tower strength, and by surrounding and scaling the tower.
The Year for Us
2016 was our rookie year, and one of the most incredible year of our life. 2016 was not only the year we started GALAXIA but also the year wefounded our Innovation Community. As rookies we set the stepping stones for years to come and had an incredible time building the robot, working with kids, and over all - making an impact. Thanks to our outreach we where able to win the Rookie All-Star award in Tel-Aviv and later on, the Championship Rookie All-Star in St. Louis.
