Kick off is here and the new 2018 Game has been released! Students, mentors and parents turned out on January 6, 2018 to watch the Game release video for our new challenge at 7:30am and to kick off the new season. This year's game is called First Power Up which has two alliances of video game characters (our robots) and their human operators (our drive team) who are trapped in an arcade game. Both alliances work to defeat the boss to escape the game. By controlling the switches and the scale, earning power ups, and climbing the scale, alliances earn points to Face the Boss!
For more information about the game, check out the release video here. The manuals and other important information can be found here. Stop Build Day is February 20. Our first event is the San Francisco Regional, March 16 through 18. We will also compete at the Silicon Valley Regional, March 29 through 31.
The team is hard at work designing, prototyping and strategizing and looking forward to Powering Up!
