Blackwater Robotics, and other FIRST Robotics teams around the world, worked tirelessly to meet the first Stop Build Day deadline of 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 19.
Starting the day of FIRST Kickoff, Teams are given six weeks to design, build, test and
troubleshoot a robot in preparation for the current year’S competition.
This was a historical moment for FRC teams as this year is the last for a mandated Stop Build Day. Starting in 2020, teams will be allowed to work up to their competition dates to build robots for that year’s event.
