1999 Robot

1999ROBOTDescription of robot

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

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

Unique feature(s)-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.
