MOE was placed in the Darwin division at the Detroit World Champs as well as MAR team’s 56 (R.O.B.B.E.) and 1391 (Metal Moose). R.O.B.B.E. asked us to be in their #1 alliance as well as Metal Moose and 4028, The Beak Squad. Although we may not have been victorious, we did end up being division finalist! Great job to all the teams who made it to Worlds! Get ready for Destination: Deep Space 2019!

We also want to give a special shout out to the competition team, ambassadors and safety captains for performing the best they have all season, we are very proud.

Thank you to everyone that came out and bagged the robot. Congratulations to our amazing students and mentors for a successful build season.
MOE has been hard at work since kickoff and accomplished a lot in the first half of build season! We are on our way to creating a great robot by the tag date!
Mechanical team working together on the first task of build season: field replicas. Pictured-giant scale.
Prototype very efficient with handling power cubes but has a tendency to giggle.
Mentor Joe Perotto teaches the mechanical team lab safety, a priority to all MOE members. Safety FIRST!
Everyone was more than prepared to open this year’s game manual and was waiting for it to be announced; having to see all the different rules and the different functions for it will be important to us all. Although it can be tiring, it’s always necessary to go in. The live broadcast revealing the new game and field for this year was something we all loved to watch, especially with the bit of laughter here and there. Although it will be a difficult one to build this year (just like any other year), our team is determined to do our best to make it work and build a great robot. We can’t wait for all the competitions and to get on that new field!
Another year, another fun Ramp Riot! Thank you everyone who donated cans to the canned food drive and helped us win the Mike Wade Memorial Award for most cans! Everyone put up a great fight and made a very interesting competition. Congratulations to our new competition team for lasting until eliminations and performing very impressive over off season! This was our last off season competition, now MOE eagerly awaits the Power Up season!
