Since our launch in 2011, we have developed new, innovative robots for our competitions. These robots are the culmination of time, research, and effort by all of our subteams and have helped our team improve every single year. These robots have been featured in our outreach events, community events, and competitions.
In Charged Up, teams focus on sustainable energy and development. Teams of three compete with each other to be the group that scores the most points using cubes and cones in a point-specific grid. Putting the game pieces in the designated area of the grid will award points. Placing the game pieces to the top row of the grid will result in maximum points and placing them at the lowest row will only result in one point. Teamwork also becomes a main focus of each round as teammates work together to balance on a charging station, resulting in score bonuses.
