The team is hard at work! The build team is working restlessly on their robot and the fundraising team is informing former and future sponsors. One word that completely describes the team's current standing is busy. Yes, that's right, the Pirates are once again on their mission in constructing their robot for the NY Regional.

The Ridgefield Robotics attended the NJIT event for the revelation of 2008's challenge! The challenge was officially revealed and is called "Overdrive". Overdrive is simply a competition where teams will race their robot strategically. By the word, "strategically", balls will also account for additional points. For example, if a robot were to toss a ball over a monkey rail, the robot's alliance would get eight points! Nevertheless, the team was hard at work this very day, designing their robot. After hours and hours of brainstorming, the team came up with two design plans in which will be prototyped. more information on the challenge>>
The Ridgefield Robotics team wishes everyone a Happy New Year! The team is excited for the revelation of 2008's challenge!
Today is the team's mentor's, Mr. Park's, birthday. We celebrated Mr. Park's birthday with a grandiose feast of junk food. We were able to meet our new members and develop a sense of team support and friendship.
This Saturday at Flanders, NJ, the FIRST Lego League competition took place. Our team along with our middle school FLL team went to the event and had a wonderful time. We consisted of two separate teams and competed very well. more>>
The Brunswick Eruption was fantastic! We had an enjoyable time at the competition. It was amazing to see so many teams with their repolished robots. After a series of tough battles, we managed to be selected by alliance team 1989. It was, overall, an awesome run of games. And, congratulations to the winners; your effort and commitment surely paid off! Well done! However, we are definitely going to miss Rack N Roll! As for now, Juggernaut, our robot, will be used for numerous presentations and of course for show!
With the Brunswick Eruption nearby, we are gearing up for another fun filled event of Rack N Roll. The Build Team is almost finished touching up the robot's arm. The spirit team also elected a new mascot! Min will be our 2008 mascot for our team. He's ready to bring the spirit level up and arise tons of laughter!
We finally visited Slocum Skewes, Ridgefield's Middle/Elementary School. It looks like we have several highly motivated, interested students. When we arrived to the school, we were immediately amazed. They were all hard at work, collaborating their ideas, and even making other unique robot models. The team helped the young ones build the basic parts of the FLL robots and helped create their research presentations.
