Meet MoonShot, our robot for the 2023 Charged Up! season. Pfizer donated a grant to help our team, so we decided to name our robot after one of their published books: MoonShot: Inside Pfizer’s Nine Month Race to Make the Impossible Possible. Moonshot used its’ claw and arm to pick up rubber cones and plastic cubes to place on nodes or shelves to earn points. At the end of the match, alliances had to balance on a seesaw-like “Charging Station” to earn even more points. Click here to watch the Charged Up! trailer. The Blue Alliance (TBA) is where you can watch our matches and view our records. Click the button below to learn more.

Door Please was our robot for the 2022 Rapid React season. At Trimation, our home base, you can’t get inside without a key card, so members of the team had to type “Door Please” in Slack, and it happened so many times that we decided to name the robot Door Please. During the match, we used our pneumatic intake to collect balls and shoot them in the basket on the middle of the field. During the last 30 seconds of the match, teams had to climb a set of three bars, trying to traverse to the highest bar for the most points. Click here to watch the Rapid React trailer.
