Tomorrow's Engineers & Scientists Learning About STEM
FTC Team #13197
We are currently preparing for our third meet, which is on January 5th, at Illinois Valley Community College. We made several changes to our robot after the second meet. First of all, we made the intake wider and used servos to flip it. This allowed us to use a DC motor to power a linear slide that we attached a new bucket to for scoring minerals in the lander. We also improved our autonomous to use our phone camera to sample the gold mineral.
A Little Bit About Us
We are a community based robotics team from Dunlap, IL, open to all kids from grade 7-12. Our team was formed in September 2017, and this will be our 2nd year competing in FIRST Tech Challenge, a yearly event designed to engage kids and spark their interests in STEM fields.
