There are a few groups that we tend to see everywhere we go. One of those groups is FIRST Robotics Competition team 79 Krunch. This team has been around since the early days of the FIRST Robotics programs and has consistently done well both on and off the field.
Henry Sloan, a member of the team's scouting sub-team, talked with us about his team's experience in the past season's game, Stronghold. This was a very different game from what we've seen in the past, and it provided all-new challenges for older teams. He also discussed the many outreach events that the team participates in, talking with the public about robotics and FIRST.
