2016 - Stronghold
During the 2015 - 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition "Stronghold" we created a robot that mainly focused on rushing the specific obstacles that were in our path. The robot used treads and had a rather large arm positioned in its middle. It was dubbed the 'tank' and there were many fond nicknames.
2015 - RECYCLE RUSH
During the 2014 - 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition "Recycle Rush", our robot was designed to be small and nimble. It's use of mecanum wheels allowed it to be omni-directional. It also used window motors to raise and lower two arms on the front of the robot to lift tote bins into the air to stack on other bins for points. At the 10,000 Lakes Regional FRC Robotics Tournament that year, we placed 15th out of 63 teams. This robot was lovingly named Juniper.
2014 - AERIAL ASSIST
During the 2013 - 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition "Aerial Assist", the robot's main claim to fame were the use of two rather large 'toro sticks' that would assist in launching a rather large ball. The wiring was rather compact and was not disturbed due to the recoil of the ball being launched.
2013 - Ultimate Ascent
During the 2012 - 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition "Ultimate Assent" saw the robot use pneumatic equipment to propel discs into the air. This tournament was a 'glorified robotic disc golf.'
