On Saturday, March 19, Square One Education Network held its Underwater Innovative Vehicle Design competition at Waterford Mott High School’s pools. In addition to checking in teams and handing out T-shirts, some members of Team 2612 volunteered to work as officials, judging the Square One teams as they competed in various challenges.
Saturday’s competition included the following three challenges:
The final game of the day was optional, but still fun to watch and participate in. This was the Drag Race underwater to see which team’s ROV was the fastest.
Although a different organization than FRC, some teams like 5527 Cyber Phoenix, compete in both. But unlike FRC, the age range of the Square One teams varied from elementary students to technical campus students. Though there were no teams from Waterford competing, two teams did represent Wayne State University’s C2 Pipeline.
By volunteering at this event, Team 2612 got a chance to see a different side of robotics. We also enjoyed being able to connect with kids of all ages who shared the love of robotics. We look forward to helping out again next year.
In other news...
Team 2612 congratulates Waterford's Our Lady of the Lakes Team 5053 and their alliance partners on winning the Center Line FRC competition this past weekend. Team 3098 from Waterford Kettering High School also competed in the finals.
The Corsairs are excited to take the FIRST STRONGHOLD field again this weekend in Lansing. You can keep up with the action with #LansingFRC or by checking the scores on The Blue Alliance. Of course, we'd love to see you cheering in the crowd if you can make it out on Friday or Saturday to Mason High School in Mason, Michigan.
Let’s go, Corsairs!
