2017-2018: Power Up

This year, our team worked extra hard to create a fantastic Chairman’s submission! We built both a competition robot and a practice robot again, allowing us to improve designs and making it easier for our drive team to practice. One of our students, Mary M., was recognized with the Dean’s List Finalist award at the Northern Lights regional. All of our hard work on our Chairman’s Award submission paid off when we won at the Minnesota North Star regional! The award qualified us for both the World Championships and the Minnesota State Championships. Even though our team struggled with electrical issues throughout the season, our robot performed well at Champs! We had lots of fun attending the State Championships & competing with the best teams in Minnesota.
