Robots

2019

Opportunity, named after the late Mars rover, is our robot from the 2019 competition, Destination: Deep Space. It features struts that allow it to climb onto a platform and an intake mechanism that efficiently picks up and places balls. Opportunity won us first place in the Glacier Peak competition.


2018

Nani was our robot from the 2018 competition, Power Up. Nani’s intake system allowed it to pick up “power cubes” and place them on a short “switch” and a tall “scale.” It also had a climb mechanism, which was used to pull itself up by a bar.


2017

Maverick is our robot from the 2017 game, Steamworks. Named after the Top Gun character, Maverick has a ball shooter as well as a climb mechanism that uses a rope to pull the robot upwards. Maverick brought the team all the way to Houston, TX for the 2017 Worlds Championship.
