2016 FTC Challenge - Velocity Vortex

In 2016, we started our FTC team as part of our Junior Robotics program. FTC Team 11842, the Cyber War Machines, tackled the Velocity Vortex challenge by building a robot that could push toggle switches and attempt to lift a yoga ball approximately 4’ in the air to place it in an overhead goal.  The robot had to fit within a cube of no more than 18” in any direction. The team made a good showing at their league competitions, but did not advance beyond the inter-league competition.
