Introducing the game for the 2018 season: FIRST Power Up! To score points in this game, teams needed to lift the yellow Power Cubes onto the Switches and Scale on the field. The robot alliances compete for control of the switches and the scale, earning points for each second in which they are in control. Power Cubes may also be taken to the exchange box to activate powerups. At the end of a match, teams could also climb to earn additional points. For the official game video, click here.
Our first PowerUp competition took place at St. Ignatius College Preparatory High School. For many members, the San Francisco Regional was their first ever robotics competition. We ranked 36th out of the 43 teams after qualification matches. Although we didn’t make it to the playoffs, we did win the judges award!
