Robojacks Blog Seven

February 24th, 2016


At Nevis, Minnesota is where we attended our first and only scrimmage before build season ended. We had a great time and got our robot to work far better than it had been. Pieces of field elements went flying, as well as wheels and other robotic components, but in the end almost everyone was better off then they were before. We learned that our robot could traverse over or under most of the obstacles in the field, and afterwords we decided to add a mechanism that would allow us to traverse over at least one more obstacle. We had two days to complete it, and we did, but our work is far from over.

Build Season Has Ended

Yesterday, at 11:59 pm is when build season ended, and now most of the robot is put away for safe keeping. We will continue to work on the mechanism that will lift us up at the end of each game, but for now our robot can do the following: It can drive over rough and uneven terrain, it can pick up boulders and shoot them a short distance into the low goals, it is low enough to do anything that requires a short robot and it can lift the door obstacle.


We are always looking for sponsors or people to contact for sponsorship, so if you are interested in sponsoring us (and have not already), or have a businesses or individual that you recommend we contact, we would be happy for you support!

Take a Peak

Here is our robot in action, but it won't be truly complete until competition comes.

this is by far the best robot we hast built yet, and i am fustian of how clutch the buildeth team came in with the final adjustments bef're we did our final hours of driving it. with an actual official scouting team, a beastly robot, top-notch spons'rs, a great cam'ra and ev'rything else, we shouldst be doing fine at competition, which will taketh placeth april 6th-9th.
