During the build season, we construct our robot based on the challenges and past experiences. We always want our robots to be robust and cover distance easily, and we try to make our attachments easily usable.We have learned many hard lessons about how robots perform – or don’t – and how programming and mechanical design go hand in hand.  We strive to push our knowledge of mechanical solutions for each year’s mission, while also learning how to use programming to account for the mechanical limitations of our robots.  For better understanding, we have divided into two main robot groups:
