2018 Power Up

History :  Graduates 2018  Power Up

2018 – Power Up


The game was announced January 6th, 2018 to FIRST Robotics Competition teams around the world. Our team gathered at William Chrisman High School, as we counted down the hours, minutes, and seconds until the game was revealed.

FIRST POWER UPSM had an retro 8-bit theme and teams are required to place milk crates, or “power cubes”, on large or small balancing scales to tip the scale and gain ownership. Alliances can also trade power cubes for power ups, giving them a temporary advantage in a match. At the end of the match, robots can climb the tower attached to the center balancing scale using a rung attached to the tower, giving them additional points.
