With the build season slowly coming to an end, our mechanical team is hard at work with finishing up this year’s robot!We all know that this will be a great robot for this year’s POWER UP and will do our best for finishing this level of the game!
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!
Nathan, 1st year student wants to be an aeronautical engineer. He finds MOE University very useful. Nate aims to gain experience in workmanship and designing for the future.
Rachel, MOE mentor of three years describes her process through MOE University. She begins by assessing the experience level of each student and puts them through the steps: tool 1, introducing them to different tools, signing them off and watching over them while getting more practice. On being one of the only female MOE mentors, she says “We need more, especially in mechanical”.
Joey, first year student, and he loves MOE University so far. He wants to be a mechanical engineer and he hopes completing seasons in MOE will give him the experience he needs to do so.
Lynn, first year student, also a participant of Lego League, likes to set up in the lab and she gets lots of credit for hands on experience. Her goal is to be a biochemist and she loves to build. The engineering experience will help her in her field.
Justin, first year, likes MOE University so far. His goal is to become a better person through teamwork experience and he hopes MOE will give him the experience that he will need in the future.
MOE got to meet each other through fun, games and trivia on Sunday. After Team Bingo, Minute to Win It games and Trivia, families came together for the team potluck. Thank you families and students for coming out and bringing food, and a special thank you to the volunteers and Boosterz who organized the event!
