Robots and More!
Of course on top of great Steamworks action, our event features other fun activities including:
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.
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.
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]).
All teams are guaranteed a spot in elimination rounds, and we play utilizing a double elimination bracket in place of the standard bracket.
