Our 2016 season was amazing! We attended 2 regionals and the World Championship. This year we built a 10 wheeled tank style robot that shot balls using a catapult. Our robot was able to go over all the defenses except the sally port door and the drawbridge. Our shooter was able to shoot in the high and low goals.
