JAY — Tuesday night, Feb. 20 Blue Crew 6153, the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team from Mt. Blue High School, joined SMART 3930 at the Spruce Mountain High School to test drive their robots.
Tuesday was the last day of the six-week build season for 2018 FIRST Power Up. This year’s game is more complex than previous ones have been and may require strategizing with other teams on the alliance.
Each team has spent the last six weeks brainstorming how to best play the game and built a robot to meet team goals.
The teams spent about two hours test driving their robots before they have to be locked up until their first competition.
SMART will compete at the New England District Granite State Event in Windham, New Hampshire, March 2-4.
Blue Crew will travel to the New England District SE Mass Event in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, March 9-11.
Both teams will be competing at the New England District Pine Tree Event in Lewiston, Maine, March 22-24.
