This year’s game for the 2019 season is Destination: Deep Space! Teams have to place “hatch panels” and “cargo” into a rocket ship and cargo ship located in various locations around the field in order to score points. Teams have two minutes and thirty seconds to place enough hatch panels and cargo into these locations before they must return to their habitat.
Our team has been working hard to understand the game in more detail, develop a basic idea of how the game will be played at competitions, and develop systems for our robot in order to be successful.
We will compete at St. Joseph (3/9-3/10), Rocket City Regional (3/14-3/17), and Center Grove (3/29-3/30) after the build season concludes.

On April 25th, Cyber Blue traveled to Detroit, Michigan to compete at Worlds. It took place in the Cobo Center this year.
We ranked 8th with a record of 6-6-0 in the Darwin division. Our alliances were Team 1519 (Mechanical Mayhem) and Team 3130 (The ERRORs). It was a hard fought battle, but unfortunately, Cyber Blue did not make it past the Quarterfinal round.
Overall, Cyber Blue had a successful season with a new blue banner (Winner of the Plainfield District) and new awards such as the Excellence in Engineering Award, two Innovation in Control Awards, and a Dean’s List Finalist Award (Haley Sellhorn). We are looking forward to a successful off-season also!
On April 12th Cyber Blue left Perry Meridian to travel to the 2018 FIRST Indiana State Competition.
After a tough match schedule, and dropping to a low ranking of 25th, Cyber Blue finished qualification matches 6th overall.
In eliminations, our alliance of 234, 135, and 5010 lost in the quarterfinal tiebreaker against 1024, 71, and 5484.
