2020 – 2021 FTC Challenge: Ultimate Goal

Another challenge our MOE team chose to participate in for our unusual new season is the First Tech Challenge: Ultimate Goal. The game’s point is to maneuver a contraption known as a wobble goal and shoot plastic rings into goals or power shots. Our team, named ReMOEte, has met several times and follows a schedule of safe in-person and fun virtual meets every Tuesday and Saturday. They have also collaborated with the MOE FTC team and practiced gracious professionalism along the way. ReMOEte has built a prototype shooter and a moving robot base – run by GitHub programming. One major issue the team faced early on was a lack of powerful batteries for consistent shooting, but teamwork and perseverance led to that problem fading away. Through each meeting, ReMOEte members have grown in skill and have gained excellent experiences that they’re sure to remember. Revisit MOENow for future updates on ReMOEte and their work!

Infinite Recharge At Home: Game Design Challenge

Season 2021 has presented some unique opportunities for the Miracle Workerz this season since in-person competitions are in question. The team decided to pursue several of these challenges, one of which is game design. Using a combination of Slack and Zoom and the power of the imagination, this smaller sub-group is using brain storming techniques combined with a game design template to work up a proposal to the FIRST judges. The sub-team first worked on coming up with storylines, game components, tasks or a complete game concept based on their own individual ideas. As they continue to meet, they’ll narrow down the options to one storyline and put together a completed game design concept presentation for the judges. The competition will initially be a group of up to 30 other teams randomly chosen internationally and move up if selected. Look to MOENow for more information as the team progresses this process!
