Duel On the Delaware
On Saturday October 16th MOE co-hosted “Duel on the Delaware ” with FRC team 316 the Lunatecs at Salem County Community College. Everyone had fun and it was a great atmosphere for all the new people competing and getting the feel for how FIRST events work. This was the first in-person event since March of 2020. Overall MOE ranked 3rd after the qualifying round. We competed in the championship match but sadly lost two matches to one.
On Saturday October 31st MOE 365 went to Ramp Riot at Wissahickon High School. Where the team excelled through the qualifying rounds. We placed 6th place after completing the qualifying rounds and competed in a 4 alliance round robin in the playoffs. We were in the fourth alliance with teams 341(Miss Daisy) and 708(Hatters). We made it to the finals but were shut-out after two matches. Despite being finalists, it was a great learning experience as we quickly head into build season this January.
On Saturday, January 25th, the team had a great time participating in STEMtastic Weekends at the Hagley Museum! We had a demonstration featuring our robots, including CaMOElot. Visitors had the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the robots, see the robots in action, and draw their own robots. We also debuted our updated coloring books, which promote engineering to children in the form of fun activities.
The Red Clay School District Superintendent, Mr. Dorrell Green, took time out of his busy schedule to stop by and visit the team’s demonstration.
Thank you to Hagley Museum and to everyone who came by to see our demonstration.
Duel On The Delaware took place on October 19th, 2019. Here are the highlights from the event:
The Duel On The Delaware Snapchat filter was viewed over 1,500 times! We also had an all new competition team, and our team was the first pick of the #3 alliance.
Miss Delaware (Hillary May) was present, announced a match, and presented the book drive awards. We had a successful book drive, participation from 30 teams from five states, and 110+ volunteers! Additionally, we had five teams participate in the mock chairman’s award – a record amount! Congratulations to the Duel Master Volunteer Winner – Kevin McKay!
Last, but not least, one highlight from this event was the Woodie Flowers tribute. Rest In Peace, Woodie!
