We engineer our robot from the ground up and create media presentations about its design and safety. Our student’s duties include mechanical and electrical design and fabrication of custom parts, programming, project management, safety and rules management, and media design. We have won many awards in design and fabrication. In 2009 and 2016, we earned awards for the imagery of our robots which celebrates attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration of machine and team appearance. In 2013, we earned a quality award for the design of our robot which celebrates machine robustness in concept and fabrication. As well as in 2014, we earned the industrial design award for our robot which celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge.
Our history in competing has also grown even more in recent years. Every year we compete at the 10,000 Lakes Regional Tournament. In 2016 at the 10,000 Lakes Regional Competition in the qualifying rounds, we were just a couple matches away from getting the opportunity to compete at the world competition in St. Louis. This past season we took 2nd at the 10,000 Lakes Regional Competition and qualified for both the World Championship in St.Louis Missouri and the Minnesota State High School League Robotics Competition. We placed in the top third of our division in a competition of over 400 teams from around the nation and the world.
