On Sunday, February 18th, 2018, Charger Robotics Team 537 will host its annual Open House and Mini-Regional Competition. This community event is free and open to the public. Teams from across southern Wisconsin will bring their robots for this year’s competition game, POWER UP, and test them in mock competition.
For those who are unable to attend, the event will also be live streamed.
The broadcast can be found at this link to the Charger Robotics Team 537 YouTube Channel.
The event will take place at Hamilton High School, W220 N6151 Town Line Road, Sussex, Wisconsin from noon to 4 pm.
We supported the Pauline Haass Library in their initiative to spread information about public libraries and how libraries can transform lives! Be sure to stop near a library and grab a book (it can even be about something other than robots)!
We have our annual Mini-Regional coming up on February 18th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm and it is FREE to attend! Raffle tickets are due on February 13th. Prizes include a flat-screen T.V, a laptop, and $300 along with gift cards and other prizes from local businesses. If you need to buy tickets ask your nearest robotics child if you wish to purchase some tickets! You can also buy tickets at the event if you did not buy them ahead of time!
This past Saturday, January 6th, 2018, our team attended the FRC Competition Season Kickoff Event at Waukesha County Technical College. Kickoff is the start of a six week period in which teams design, manufacture, assemble and code their competition robots. The new game challenge is released to all teams worldwide during this event.
This year’s challenge is FIRST® POWER UP℠! The field and activities are designed to mimic a 1980’s video game. With this challenge our robots need to be swift and agile, able to put Power Cubes (milk crates) on top of switches and scales, and interact with human players. At the end of the round, the robots have the opportunity to climb the scale and get 30 points for their alliance by “Facing the Boss”.
We are looking forward to seeing how all the teams’ robots turn out this year!
