from the Environmental responsibility - recycling thread gave me the idea of asking what everyone is using the MOGOs from this year for now. This question extends to other games as well. Let’s see how everyone is reuseing old game elements.
Really makes me think RECF/Vex could have one of their online challenges be how best to use that season’s game elements for reuse. Gets to the end of the season, and here’s some great ideas on what you could use them for!
Beats it just going to the landfill by a long shot!
The post is ½" schedule 40 PVC pipe, which is the same stuff used in Tipping Point branches and Change Up goals (or at least it has the same OD). These particular posts were pulled from some Change Up element kits which we bought for in-person events that never ended up happening. Unfortunately that means they don’t have any cool robot scratches patina on them, but hopefully that will come with time.
The other parts are just 3D prints – still need to make a few revisions but I’ll share STLs here once I’m happy with them.
We used the old game pieces as awards. I got these for two things: one for having the most complicated code in the club, and the other for breaking my robot the most. (We had two motor burnouts in two days, unrelated problems, it was a conspiracy)
