Our 2019 Robot Reveal night was a success! Many of our friends, families, and sponsors took time out of their day to hear an overview of build season and see our robot “Apollo” in action. The night consisted of our team leads highlighting their specific responsibilities including managing the build process, building of the subsystems, programming the robot, and a team operations update. The audience was able to gain insight into what it takes to build the robot and each of our subsystems subsystems; the hatch panel intake, the elevator, and the cargo intake. Once we finished talking about the robot, we conducted a robot demonstration by simulating an official match. We successfully scored multiple hatch panels and cargo pieces. We even completed a level two HAB climb! We thank all of you who attended and appreciate your support! Please see below for some pictures from the event.
