FRC Predictions

If you’ve been on our Twitter lately, you know that there are only 3 days left until the kickoff of the 2018 FRC game, FIRST POWER UP. We are excited for this game, so to commemorate this event, and to have a little fun before the season starts, we asked various members of our team what they thought this year’s game will entail. Here are a few of their responses:


Tim, a veteran member of the Controls subteam: “a climbing game, with pyramid-like stars and possibly shooting”


Aidan, a rookie member of Programming: “pick up coins and score them”


Diego, a rookie member of Programming: “Like a Pac-Man maze, with collecting power pellets or ghosts for points”


James, the safety captain, and Julia, a veteran member of Programming: “stair-climbing”


Avery, the Mechanical lead: “general old-school games, not anything specific, with a person on the field”


Mr. Dickinson, a Mechanical mentor: “a disc of some sort, like a coin, that would enable something. Possibly a change in elevation or a stair climbing, maybe a ladder”


Mr. Carroll, a Business Mentor: “Like Donkey Kong”


Mr. Farrell, the Lead Mentor: “Launching something, possibly a mini-bot or tennis balls that a Pac-Man-like thing can ‘gobble up’”


Mr. Davis, a Business Mentor: “will include a little robot that has to get to a certain level before you can ‘power up’ and use your big robot for the game”


Mrs. Davis, a Business Mentor: “Like Pac-Man, with a robot going around and ‘eating’ balls from the field”
We had fun making these guesses, and whether they turn out to be right or not, we know we’ll have fun building our robot when we learn about the game at kickoff on the 6th. Until then, have a great week and keep checking this page, as well as our Twitter for updates.
