On February 13, 2016 the STARBASE 2.0 team, Robotnauts, will be heading to Casper, Wyoming for the Wyoming State Championship.  For the past few months, this team has bee designing and programming a Tetrix robot to compete in this event.
The 2015-2016 game, FIRST® RES-QSM, is modeled after rescue situations faced by mountain explorers all over the globe. Played by two Alliances of two robots each, robots will score points by: “resetting” Rescue beacons; delivering Rescue Climbers to a shelter; parking on the mountain; and parking in the Rescue beacon repair zone or floor goal. Robots may also score points by retrieving debris from the playing field and placing them in mountain or floor goals, and also by hanging from a pull-up bar during the last 30-seconds of a match
