2020 FRC Season – INFINITE RECHARGE

COVID-19 ended up defining the 2020 season.

2020 was Mechanical Advantage 6328’s 4th season. We were excited to see what we could accomplish with no Bag Day for the first time! Unfortunately for all FRC teams, the season was abruptly shut down in mid-March with the arrival of the coronavirus pandemic that disrupted everything globally.

We were scheduled to compete in the Northern CT District, Carleton District (an inter-district competition in Ottawa, Ontario), and Greater Boston District. We were fortunate to be able to actually compete in the Northern CT District event, where we were the 3rd seed alliance caption. We made it all the way through playoffs to the finals, where we lost to an amazing alliance. We were also deeply honored to receive the Chairman’s Award at the event!

Bot-Bot Strikes Back

For judged awards, co-Student Lead Maddie Tuck was selected as a Dean’s List semi-finalist from the Greater Boston District event. Yay, Maddie!

While the New England District Championship robot competition could not be held, Chairman’s Award interviews were held virtually and we were deeply honored to be awarded the District Championship Chairman’s Award!

We were also part of piloting the Open Alliance program on Chief Delphi, where we and several other teams conducted an open build season and shared our processes and decisions all along the way. We thank the other teams that contributed to the open alliance and truly feel that it helped us be a better team. Read through our 2020 Open Build blog.
