On January 6, cold weather forced the Sharp Team into Sarah Heinz House to view the annual release of the FRC Challenge. Over 30 members watched a retro 8-bit introduction of the philosophy behind the challenge of capturing and controlling the arena with power up cubes. After an introduction by founder Dean Kamen, the live stream from New Hampshire showed the first arena and how each element contributed to the scoring and success for each alliance. Fueled with nachos and cake members formed groups and teams to address components of this year’s Power Up Challenge. Go Sharp!
