Team History – 1999

Description of Robot

Our robot was a scissor-jack that lifted two-foot diameter floppies filled with packing peanuts eight feet in the air.


The Steel Falcon had a strong gripper that grabbed the puck efficiently. It also had a strong quarter-inch steel bottom base plate.

Unique Features

We were one for the few teams that had a wood scissor-jack, which lead to some interesting advantages.

Favorite Memory with Robot

Because it was our first year, and our first robot, the entire season was our favorite memory.

Robot Accomplishments

Since this was our rookie year, our greatest accomplishment was actually just getting the robot built and running on-time.
