  • 2017 – Steamworks
    Here is the kick-off video for this year! Our team strategy prioritizes the gear and climbing the rope, but we also have a group working on shooting the balls into the high goal. Here are some action shots from the middle of the build season:  
  • 2015 – Recycle Rush
    A new year; a new challenge. This year, we had to design a bot that was able to stack totes and barrels. After a few different design ideas, we decided on a claw that was able to lift both barrels and totes, and stack 2-3 totes with a barrel on top. Here’s a link to […]
  • 2016 – Stronghold
    The competition this year is one of the most intricate competitions in a while. The challenge is has a medieval theme, with each side having their own castle.
