What do we do?
Here is a compilation of the competitions our team enters itself into annually.
This is an event where we out our combat robots to the test and see if they can not only survive, but win in battles against other Robots.
We also compete our Firefighter Robot, which goes through a course searching for a candle flame and its main goal is to not only find the flame, but to also put it out.
This upcoming year, the team looks forward to trying to participate in more events such as RoboMagellan, Line follower, and some Art bot competitions.
In Maker Faire, we are challenged to take the basic framework of a Barbie-kid car and reinforce it, speed it up, and make it so adults can competitatevly race in a section of Maker Faire called the Power Racing series. The catch f this project is that all the maintenance and extras must remain under $500.
It is possible we may want to enter some of our art bots as well, but it is still in the works as to whether or not the team will commit.
