THE GORILLABOTS started in the 2015-2016 season as a rookie team called THE 4 TECHS. We were only four students, but we made a big impact! Our first year, we won Robot Performance awards at the Qualifier and Regional tournaments, and went all the way to the State tournament. We expanded the team a bit in 2016-2017, and we renamed ourselves to THE GORILLABOTS. Our strength has always been Robot Design and Performance, and we've usually struggled with Core Values and/or Project. But in the 2017-2018 season, we went all the way to State again - this time taking 2nd place in Robot Performance. We also did a great Project where we teamed up with the Overthinkers to build a rain garden in Takesta Park.
The 2018-2019 season has been our best year yet! This year for our Project we designed a zero-gravity washing machine to be used on a mission to Mars, and we have been really improving in our Core Values. We won Robot Performance and Tournament Champion at the Qualifier, and Tournament Champion at Regionals, which got us a bid to go to the World Festival in Houston!
UPDATE: The World Festival was awesome, and we had such a great time! Here's a slideshow of some of the craziness:
