DEWBOT XIII Westtown
This was 1640's first SteamWorks event. How did we do? Okay, but not as well as we imagined. We finished qualifications in 18th (of 31) with a 5-7-0 record; not impressive. We got 4 rotors running in one qual match, though, and we finished as semifinalist and received the Innovation in Control award for our CVT swerve design & control strategy. We earned 33 points towards MAR qualification.
Meghana became a Deans' List semifinalist!
As expected, Fuel scoring played a small role at this event, with the focus on gears/rotors and rope climbing. Our initial rope was inadequate; breaking in two matches. We got good at running gears by the event's end.
