Week-5: A Whole New Bot

Apparently we had more perfecting to do and kinks to work out than we thought. In the last week we have almost completely reconstructed the manipulator. We have added, among other improvements: a larger lifting piston, structural supports, piston restrictors, and a tote stabilization device. In terms of more standard improvements we have mounted our electronics and our pneumatic cylinders. We are reaching our last full build week, but we definitely aren’t slowing down now! Let’s keep up the good work team. Thank you to all our parents and sponsors, and have a nice weekend.


Welcome to the online home of the Washburn Robotics team 2549. We are a group of high school students 9th-12th grade. Each year we build 120lb robots to complete challenges posed by a new game we get each year. Come join our team!
