NextEra Family Day

Thank you to everyone who came to the NextEra Energy Center for their Family Day event! We had a great time working with our sister team Droid Rage #3381 and showing off all levels of the program. There were over 300 people going through our Lego League, Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition robots, some even had a chance to drive! The FLL Team "Bottle Savers" was here showing potential recruits how to program the Lego robots, giving everyone hands on experience. A special thanks to the Fox 11 Good Morning Wisconsin show for their broadcast on Monday featuring our teams!

Wisconsin Regional here we come!

The team spent the last couple weeks working on upgrades for the robot. In addition to our multiple autonomous modes (Cheval-de-freise, portcullis and low bar) and experienced drive team in teleop-mode, we will soon be able to shoot low goals! We are geared up and ready to compete in Milwaukee this weekend!


Lake Superior Regional - Duluth
Saturday Update

STEMpunk was graciously chosen to compete on the 6th seed alliance by Team #2538 The Plaid Pillagers and Team #2823 The Automatons. After defeating the 3rd seed alliance in the quarterfinals we went on to win our first match of the semifinal round versus the 2nd seed alliance. Unfortunately we didn't make it through to the finals match, but were excited none the less to be chosen to compete side by side with these 2 teams. Good luck in future competitions!

Keep an eye on the website for our Lake Superior Regional highlight video that is currently in the works!


Lake Superior Regional - Duluth
Friday Update

We are continuing to improve our strategy and gaining drive time and experience with the many game obstacles. We now have multiple different choices for our autonomous mode, either going under the lowbar, under the portcullis and driving up to an obstacle but not over it. We finished the day today dialing in the mode to traverse the cheval-de-freise which is exceptionally challenging. We have 2 matches tomorrow morning - check us out around 10:45am and 12:08pm on NASA.gov


Lake Superior Regional - Duluth
Thursday Update

We made it to Duluth safe and sound, were running for all of our practice matches and passed the robot inspection! We have a few minor upgrades to make to the robot for Qualification matches tomorrow. Watch our matches live-streamed at NASA.gov Our Match Schedule is:
