It’s Build Season and this is the 2018 FRC Challenge - FIRST Power Up

We are working on our 18th Robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition, one that will place boxes into a scale and pull itself up on a bar for bonus points.

"FIRST POWER UP finds FIRST Robotics Competition teams trapped in an 8-bit video game. Each three-team alliance has three ways to help defeat the boss: Tipping the scale or the alliance’s switch in their favor to earn points, exchanging power cubes for power ups (force, boost, and levitate) to gain a temporary advantage during the match, and climbing the scale tower to face the boss. The alliance with the highest score at the end of the match, which includes autonomous and teleoperated periods, defeats the boss and wins the game."
