Our HS robotics students were tasked with designing sumo robots that would literally battle for a grand prize. Students used a programming flowchart to base their designs off and kept an engineering journal to report their attempts and progress.
I think our sturdy design and 3:1 gear ratio made us successful against the other robots. We focused heavily on our design, constantly making improvements and remaining with a very short but efficient and functioning code.Aleks, student
It’s very powerful gear ratio made the robot very strong in head to head battles. It also didn’t have any over-complicated gadgets or code that could potentially fail.Todd, student
We focused on making a very robust and well-programmed robot, and in that we succeeded. This meant that in battle, it would be very reliable, but would also be much smarter than other robots, as it is able to switch between more than the two required states.Eskil, student
