Crescendo presented by Haas is part of the FIRST-wide FIRST STEAM theme for the 2023-2024 season, which focuses on how the arts and STEM go hand in hand. In Crescendo, alliances of three teams scramble to score points in the amp and speakers. Nearing the end of each match, teams can try to hang on chains on their team's stage. More points will be awarded to the alliance if more robots can hang or park on the same side of the stage. At the end of the game, judges tally up the scores to see which alliance won the match!
