Firebirds Gearing Up for PowerUp 2018

The Firebirds, Mount's robotics team, are preparing for PowerUp 2018, aFIRST Robotics Competition.

The Firebirds, Mount's robotics team, are preparing for PowerUp 2018, a FIRST Robotics Competition that, according to their website, "pairs high school students with adult mentors (primarily engineers and teachers) to design and build robots that compete against one another in a high-energy environment. It’s as close to 'real-world' engineering as a student can get."

The Firebirds have been busy building a new robot for this competition, and they're documenting their progress in a series of weekly videos. Watch the first three weeks here:
