TEAM #3572



THE TEAM

Our team consists of a wide range of students from all backgounds.  We typically have 10-20 students involved and 5-10 mentors working along side the students.  Our team operates out of Mona Shores High School where we fabricate over 80% of the parts and components that we use in competition.


THE CHALLENGE

2021 sees a replay of the 2020 game, Infinite Recharge.  This year the challenge has been updated to be focused on a series of at home programming and skills challenges.


THE ROBOT

Our robot relies on robust designs that are developed with repair and maintenance in mind.  All parts are easily accesible and can be reparied or swapped out in a matter of minutes.  Through competition in 2020 and the at home challenges in 2021, we only had a handful of breakdowns and all were remedied in just a few minutes between matches.
