The 2018 game required robots to retrieve power cubes and place them on scales and switches to attain points per second. In this game, speed was just as important as being able to pick-up/place these power cubes, especially in the higher divisions. Our team had early success winning both Regional Events and coming into our Newton Division at Worlds with a first seeded position. Overall we had a successful season and are looking forward to what 2019 holds.

Our Robot composed of a tank drive with four omni wheels that averaged a speed of 16 ft./sec.. Onto this, we had a three-stage nesting elevator that reached to heights over 7 ft.. With this we had a dual-movement intake that allowed power cubes to be grasped and transported to either scale or switch. The climber, which contributed to a major part of our success, was able to hold our robot and a plus one to earn a ranking point. The structure needed to hoist another teammate required in-depth prototyping that had to be altered over the course of the season.
