Our Previous Robots
Season 4 | 2021-2022
This season's challenge, Rapid React presented by The Boeing Company, was centered around the theme of transportation. The game consisted of teams shooting Cargo (inflatable balls) into a central Hub and then climbing within their "hangars" at the end of the match. Our robot was not designed to gather any Cargo. Instead our strategy was to be a robot that could climb really well and to play defense. At the Northern Lights Regional competition in Duluth, Minnesota, we advanced to the quarter finals.

Season 3 | 2020-2021
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there was no robot building during Season 3. The first half of the season's meetings were held virtually. The season's challenge consisted of the teams creating and designing a FIRST Robotics Competition game. We competed against other teams for a chance to present our game to the FIRST Robotics Competition Game Design Team. We designed a pirate themed game called Anchors Aweigh. Our idea was for robots to pick up star-shaped and coin game pieces from the center of the field and place them into their treasure chests to score points. Robots could also score points by launching cannon balls at the sails on the pirate ships. During the last 30 seconds of the match, robots could begin to hoist up their anchors in order to prepare for an escape from the invading pirates. Once the anchors had been lifted and locked in place, robots climbed their chains to board their ship and sail away! The team created and submitted a video demonstrating our game challenge.
