FIRST '22-23 PowerPlay Challenge

What does a competitive robotics team season look like? πŸ”½

Our robotics team is competitive...but we have fun, too!

  • Robot Games – 3 League Meets (Nov-Jan) during Season that each robot team plays 5 to 6 qualification rounds with an alliance partner robot against 2 other teams (4 robots on the field).

      • Games are 3 minutes long, with the first 30 seconds being autonomous and the remainder is driver controlled (think xbox controllers)

      • The game field is 12β€² x 12β€² on foam tiles with a 1β€² high perimeter

  • League Championship (Feb) - competition against 30+ teams to determine winning alliances and awards.

            • Approx. 25% of teams move on to State

            • Awards (Inspire, Think, Connect, Motivate, etc...)

  • State & World Championship (Mar-Apr) - best of the best going head to head

  • Engineering Portfolio – documentation about your season, engineering design process, programming & CAD, outreaches, and team building.

  • Judges Interview – Presentation and Q&A time with the judges about your robot and season.
