We started the week 1 competition in Albany with Astro, our 2023 robot, as a push bot. After overcoming electrical issues and making programming adjustments, we persevered to become the 3rd-highest scoring robot. CSP 4188 was chosen as a part of the finalist, second-seed, alliance along with @mechbulls as our alliance captains and @camdenwildbots as our partners.
Thanks to our entire team for working together - from our pit and electrical crews who tirelessly worked on our robot's arm, to our programmers and drive team who powered through stressful matches, to our scouts who scrutinized over 8,000 data points collected over the weekend!
Thanks also to team members cheering from the stands and volunteering on the field - We were #ChargedUp!
On top of being a part of the finalist alliance, we were also awarded the Engineering Inspiration Award through the tireless work of our awards and outreach teams! To round-out our winning streak, team member Arha G. was chosen as a Dean's List semi-finalist. We can't wait for our next competition!
