Andre The Giant Competes at First Robotics

Submitted by amy.ewell on Sun, 05/08/2022 - 21:44

For three days each spring, crowds gather at the Maverick Center in West Valley to watch an event unlike any other. Their interest? Forty-two industrial-grade robots, the product of three months of hard work from High School students around the country (and even the world). An excited hum runs through the crowd, backed by the symphony of power tools in the distance. After an enthusiastic countdown led by an energetic emcee, six robots suddenly spring into autonomous action collecting 9-inch tennis balls, aligning to a target, and shooting their collected cargo into a tiered series of four-foot-wide baskets. Some hopeful human players even attempt a half-court-equivalent basket of their own from the sidelines.
