Yes, those are FLL trophies you see in the background
. Although the robot was not quite a half scale twin of our competition, it was able to prove that a lot of our design ideas would work well together. At the beginning of the season, the FRC team was divided into groups that made prototypes of different components of our robot. All of the prototypes were separate pieces and we weren't exactly sure how they would function together. So the tech design class was able to take some of our better prototype ideas and find a way to make them properly interact together. Building this robot proved to be quite a useful exercise for both the tech design class as well as the FRC team. The robot is no longer together because some of the components needed to be recycled for other VEX projects.
