Charged Up is the 2023 FIRST Robotics Competition game. Charged Up is played by two alliances of three teams each, with each team controlling a robot and completing specific actions in order to score points. The game revolves around both alliances placing safety cones and inflatable “cubes” on 3 power grids. Then in the last 30 seconds, each team rushes to balance on and engage their charging station. The overall objective of each match is to score more points than the opposing alliance before the match ends. More information can be found on Wikipedia or watch the game animation.
This year we are attending the Minnesota Northern Lights Regional along with the Iowa Regional. We are also attending the World Championship in Houston after being pre-qualified from our Engineering Inspiration win last year.
