- Switching the Shield generator control lever
The robotics team is very excited for this year’s game, and are ready for any challenge that comes their way!
The Cybergnomes are registered to attend 3 events in the upcoming competition season.
March 4-7 Festival of Robots in Sherbrooke, Quebec
March 13-15 at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario
March 27-29 at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ontario
Like any other year we started with a kick off and went straight into our six week build season. For this years competition we decided to try something new and make a swerve drive for the robot which proved useful in this year’s game. During this year’s competition season we went to three events, the first being the Georgian College district event where we won the “Judge’s award”, the second being a regional in Peoria Illinois and the third and final one was in North Bay. The season had its ups and downs, and even though we didn’t make it as far as we would have liked we still continued to reach new heights and expand our horizons.
