This year’s game of OCCRA was a blast the game was connect four. Team’s had to build a bot to drop balls into a slot to try and get four in a row. There was even a part, borrowed from the FRC competition last year, near the end of the round where bots have 20 seconds to hang to get some additional points to capitalize their lead or make a comeback victory.
During the first couple games our bot struggled to score and hold two balls at once but towards the third and last competition the bot strived at scoring and maneuvering thanks to our Build team, Programmers, Electrical Team and Drive Team.
As the season draws to an end team 2612 had an amazing time making alliances, solving problems, and making new bonds.
