iMAGINE Upstate Festival

We attended the iMAGINE Upstate STEM festival on Saturday, April 5th. We showed last year’s robot hookshot in a mock competition held at the peace center with other FRC teams from upstate SC. We also showed our robot cliffhanger. We shot basketballs with MIMsanity to children outside on Main Street, Greenville. We had a great time!

Arm-Strong v2.0

 Our robot, Arm-strong v2.0, for the 2015 Recycle Rush FRC Game, did great at the Palmetto Regional Competition in Myrtle Beach on March 26-28th. We placed 6 in quarterfinals.

Team 343’s 2015 Robot Reveal

photoThe name of this year’s robot is…

Arm-Strong v2.0!

We are looking forward to the Palmetto Regional Competition which is coming up next week!

Our robot can lift six totes with a recycle bin on top.

We have an autonomous where we stack all three totes in the staging zone with a recycle bin on top, move to the auto zone, and back off from the stack.

We have arms that extend out to reach totes on the step.

Good luck to all teams attending the Palmetto Regional!
