This competition was one of the primary events we competed in in the 2017 build season. We were able to properly prototype and practice our robot so we initially had high hopes, though they fell short in the ring Nonetheless, many new members were able to gain experience in their respective departments and also had a lot of fun.
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.
The competition was a season regional.
