Our Past

                                        2018 Power Up

This year our team did very well at our regional event. We stayed mostly around 15th place throughout qualification matches. We were the number one ranked robot for scoring power cubes in the vault, which was the reason that we were picked by the number eight alliance. We beat the number one alliance and advanced to the semi-finals where we beat the number four seed. We ended up getting second but we received a wild card and are heading to Detroit to compete in the World Championship! Here is the game video.
      
2017 Steamworks 

After our qualification matches on Friday, we were ranked 60th. However, the team voted to update our climber, to make it larger and therefore more efficient. Several students redesigned the climber and built the climber that night. After two qualification matches on Saturday we rose up to 30th. We were close to being picked and are hoping to use what we learned this year in the next game. If you are interested in watching the game video click this link.



2016 Stronghold

This years robot did very well placing 20 out of 63 teams. We got picked as alliances and got 3rd over all. We are hoping to be picked for state and go on. We were close with going to worlds but, next year we will get there Here's the game video.



                         2015 Recycle Rush                                                                                        
This year we didn't do as well as we wanted to in 10,000 Lakes regional. With lifting totes and bins was difficult. The hardest part was stacking them without having the totes tip over. We didn't get picked for state, but we did exceptionally well. Here's the game video.


2014 Aerial Assist

This year was about getting a huge ball through goals, by yourself or with cooperation with alliances. This year we did very well. Placing 3rd before the finals and 6th after the finals but, not going to worlds. Here's the game video. 


2013 Ultimate Ascent
 
This Frisbee robot went well but, not as well as 2011. We didn't go
to the worlds but, we did place 5th and got picked as an alliance. Over all we did very well and learned from our mistakes.





2012 Rebound Rumble

 This years robot went well! We placed well but, didn't go on for the World Competition. We learned an awful lot from other teams and our mistakes.  Here's the Video




 2011  LogoMotion

After having such a successful previous year, 2011 was a little bit of a let down. Here is a a link for the game video for LogoMotion. Our robot didn't perform as well and we didn't place as high at the 10,000 Lakes Regional. We learned from our mistakes though, and that is the most important part of this program.
 

 2010 Breakaway

This was our team's most successful year so far. The game was very similar to soccer. Here is the game video for Breakaway. The team made it to the finals at the 10,000 Lakes Minnesota Regional. We were on an alliance with Team 1714 and Team 2062 and won the competition. After we won, we had 10 days to try to raise enough money to go to the Championships in Atlanta, Georgia. Thanks to St. Jude Medical and other local sponsors, we were able to go. We took a 24 hour bus ride straight to Atlanta. It was a blast! In the end, we came to place 32nd in one of four divisions. We learned a lot and had a great experience.
 

2009 Lunacy

This was the team's rookie year.  As with all first year teams, the group was pretty focused on just understanding what was going on.  We did pretty good even though we were only rookies. Here is a video of our first robot.
