FRC 2017 Game STEAMWORKS

The goal of this years game is to prepare an airship for takeoff.  Robots must collect fuel in the form of 5 inch diameter wiffle balls secured in containers around the arena and score them into two goals in the form of a steam boiler, a low goal and high goal. They must also acquire gears and take them to the airship on their side of the field.  For the first time in FIRST history, human players are on the field during a match. Their job is to receive the gears and connect them to the rotors so they can spin. In the end game, robots can climb a rope and push a pressure plate on the airship which light a lamp. The Airship most prepared to fly wins!
