Imagine being part of a real, live video game. The 2018 season gave us just that opportunity. With the theme “POWER UP,” teams find themselves strapped in an 8-bit video game. Working with your 3 team alliance, you must tip scales, gather power cubes, and climb the scale to earn points. When it’s “GAME OVER,” the alliance with the highest score, including autonomous and teleoperated periods wins!
As a second year team, we grew and we challenged ourselves with our design. We won the Regional Engineering Inspiration Award and went on to compete in Houston, Texas at the World Championships.
