Student-Built Robot Hits the Target

June 09, 2021

FIRST Robotics Contest (FRC) team participants had a successful season this year, although the competition was virtual due to the pandemic.

The team had to build a robot that could pick up seven-inch foam balls and shoot them at a target eight feet above the ground, all while navigating around a playing field with other robots. We were able to launch balls at 30 miles per hour, hitting a target at a distance of about 20 feet.  While we didn't have the opportunity to compete against other teams this year, we were able to accomplish all the goals that we had set for ourselves.
