Mirabelle, Kieran, and David tightening screwa

Our Approach

Our team values teamwork, determination, hard work, and perseverance. This year our team has faced a great deal of problems, including stripped gears, broken encoders, and leaks in our pneumatic system. Although these difficulties cost us large amounts of time, it brought us closer as a team and we were able to come together and build a strong, dependent robot. Throughout this season, we have succeeded in staying true to our values and supporting each other's learning and growth, which has aided our development into strong engineers.
