Our first 2017 off-season event was at CalGames! Using our old robot from last season-dubbed Woz-we placed 32nd out of 35th. Calgames served as an opportunity to teach new members about the general logistics of a robotics competition. While we didn’t do well, we had a lot of fun competing and teaching our members about robotics.
This competition used the FRC Steamworks game. The game’s manual can be found here. The game involves shooting fuel balls into boilers, placing gears on pegs, and climbing the airship at the end. Our robot focuses on the last two objectives.
