MadTown Throwdown was a blast!

Done packing for the ride home!

November 9 - 11, we headed to the 2017 MadTown Throwdown a great event in Madera where we compete running the previous season’s competition robot, our practice robot and a third robot. The students designed and built the third robot over the summer. This year, the third robot, Nemo, focused on being quick, scoring gears and hanging.

MadTown Throwdown is here!

MadTown Throwdown is this weekend, November 10th and 11th, in Madera.

We are putting the finishing touches on our three robots and packing in anticipation of this fun event. Come check out the competition beginning Friday at 8:00am, culminating with the finals on Saturday at 1:00pm. This year we are bringing our 2017 Competition robot, our 2017 Practice robot and our Third robot project....a speedy, gear flipping, airship scaling robot named Nemo!
