2018 Challenge: FIRST Power Up
FIRST STEAMWORKS invites two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power to prepare
their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Alliances have to deliver gears from a loading station to a peg located on their respective airship where a human player will receive the gears and use them to turn rotors on the airship. Robots also have to be able to build pressure in a boiler on the airship by shooting whiffle balls into either a high goal or a low goal. In the final 30 seconds of the match, pilots in the airships will drop a rope for the robots to climb.
