MOE is Back Home

While in Lehigh, MOE 365 ended with a 7-5 record, though we played with vigor. MOE was fortunate to collaborate with team 2590 – Nemesis as the 8th alliance captain and the second pick 1219 – Vulcan Robotics. Together we challenged the #1 alliance three times during the quarterfinals before we lost. We had many restarted matches and our arm was giving us trouble, but we did not let that shake our confidence. We kept the scores close for match one, set a high score (at the time) in match 2 of 192 points, but the challenges of the Stronghold game can be difficult for even the best robots. We certainly didn’t return empty handed! MOE received a Xerox Creativity Award for our scaling mechanism, Carol Perrotto was recognized with the Woodie Flowers Finalist Award for outstanding mentor, and Josh Gross was recognized as one of four finalists from the MAR District to compete for the top student “Dean’s List” Awards at the World Championship. Also, we got a big THANK YOU award from Team 4342, Demon Robotics from Kennett Square, for sharing/teaching our scoring strategy. We also unveiled our MOE-jan Rabbit cart and robot cozy and got lots of attention. Shoutout to Brian West!
