Our robot for meet #1 was ambitious, but not quite as ready as we had planned. We had a basic chassis that was 3-D printed and we had a ball collector and beacon presser. With the gen 1 robot, we could collect balls and launch them up the ramp and we could push beacons. We also had an autonomous program to push beacons although it was not really effective.

    Highest Alliance Score: 64

Our robot for meet #2 was much better with a design that included a modified, 3D printed, multicolered chassis along with a few new features.  Improvements were made to the mecanum drive system to allow for better strafing.  We added a ball launcher that was relatively reliable.  And last, but not least, a dedicated beacon presser.  We had an autonomous that would push two beacons although it didn't work every time.

 Highest Alliance Score: 135 (+100 in penalties)

For meet 3, the robot included an upgraded ball launcher tube.  Unfortunately, the autonomous still did not work as desired.

We did not compete in this Championship as the robot was undergoing some major renovations in preparation for the Regional Championship on Feb 18.  However, since we were the hosts for the SE Houston League, we worked as scorekeepers, inspectors, counters, and general helpers.
