As the final Bag Day came upon us, we’ve had ups and downs with the robot just like any other year. The challenges were difficult but we triumphed over them. The Robot SuperMOEva got in its bag around 10:30 p.m. that night. Now we wait for our FIRST Competition at Westtown High School and our first official look at the field. We’re ready for you Deep Space!
MOE was watching the live stream during Saturday’s Kickoff Video where we found out the how the entire field will look for Destination: Deep Space and all of the rules. After the live stream was over, we all discussed how this game could go, what to think about while designing the robot, all specifications in the game manual and many other things. Many students have smart ideas including ways to climb onto the third level, different ways to use the sandstorm period to our advantage, etc.
We cannot wait to see how everything plays out in our first competition in Westtown and all the competitions that follow.
As our 20th Anniversary is coming up, we’re encouraging our alumni and anyone else who wants to help out to donate about $20 or more for this year’s team expenses! You may think that $20 isn’t much, but that can help our students pay off their travel expenses or even get a meal plan for the build season. We’d all very much appreciate any donation we can get. You can learn more and donate here!
