We were so thrilled to be able to compete at Bryant University in the Rhode Island District Event! Big changes happened for the robot, it got a new look, the indexer and shooting mechanisms were taken off and a new gear pick-up system was added, a pneumatic floor pick-up allowing the robot to get gears from the floor and place them onto the airship as well as a new climbing system, a “rake” design that grabs the rope and rotates to pull the robot up. The new design proved to be effective as the team ranked 15th and was selected by the 5th ranked alliance captain for the playoff matches.
We want to thank all the volunteers and event coordinators for putting on an amazing event as well as our alliance partners, 121 Rhode Warrior and 2064 The Panther Project!
We’ll be headed to the world championship event in St. Louis April 26-29 where we will be competing with teams from around the world! See you then!
