Robots and More!

Of course on top of great Steamworks action, our event features other fun activities including:

*Mentor Robot
The mentor robot is listed as team 666 on the schedule (The Tormentors!!!). It will have matches in the qualifying rounds and during those matches it will be driven by mentors. Mentors will be able to be a part of the drive team for an individual match. Here is your chance to show your team what you can do. Find a match where the mentor robot is on the same alliance as your team, or even better find a match where you square off against your team. The team that donates a second robot as the mentor robot gets free admission into the event.

Guest Announcer

Every year we have a lot of fun with the guest announcer so were are doing it again. Every 4 th match we will let anyone that wants to try to be the play by play announcer give it a shot. Signups will be at the check in table.

Chairman’s Videos

We will again have a monitor playing the Chairman’s videos in a constant loop so everyone can watch them. We will also being judging the videos. If anyone wants to help judge them please let us know.

Bill Reis Award

We would also like to recognize a mentor for all of their efforts in the program. Teams can submit an essay (your Woody Flowers essay is fine) about one of your mentors for consideration. Send to Rob Cormier ([email protected]).

So exciting news.

Teams 2067, 558, and 230 are collaborating to make this years Mentor robot. It is going to be amazing. We will even include it into the playoffs. The Tormentors in the playoffs.

Now the question is which mentors can handle the pressure of being in the playoffs for the coveted WIWI championship. :slight_smile:

Stay tuned

Last year’s finalist alliance captain 5421 will be there once again!!!

We’ve got only three spots left! Don’t miss out on your chance to participate in all the fun.

Our current team list is located on The Blue Alliance:

There will be a NEMO (Non-Engineering Mentor Organization) meeting from 10am to noon for all adult mentors who work in the non-technical areas of their teams. Room TBD (check at the team registration desk in the lobby). Please let your mentors know as sometimes the NEMs don’t always attend off-seasons!
