In the 2006 game, “Aim High,” students’ robots are designed to launch balls into goals while human players enter balls into play and score points by throwing/pushing balls into corner goals. Extra points are scored by robots racing back to their end zones and climbing the ramp to the platform before the end of the 2 minute and 10 second match.

Events Attended: Great Lakes Regional, Wisconsin Regional, Archimedes Division

Milestones: Moved out of Visteon and into Mr. Obsniuk’s classroom in Salem H.S. This year we applied for and were selected to receive a sponsorship grant from NASA. We also mentored LEGO League teams in our community. Though this didn’t work as well as we hoped, many students from the LEGO league teams later joined our team.
