Team 80516E is the club’s “leadership team”. Two of this team’s members, Bethany and Parker, placed second in the world at the VEX IQ World Championships. Their robot is a V5 with a reverse double four bar lift and a puncher.
Team 80516G is made up of four members with past VRC experience. Their robot is Cortex with a chain-bar lift and a puncher.
Lead builder & lead driver
Team 80516J is a mix of new and experienced members, but all of them bring experience in robotics. Their robot is Cortex with a very fast drive base that is good at pushing other robots around.
Team 80516X is a mix of new and experienced members, and most of them have previous VEX or VEX IQ experience. Their robot is a Cortex with a cap flipper.
The non-competitive members help out the competitive teams and help run the club. After getting some experience as non-competitive members, many go on to join teams.
