971 ama

We don’t know about you, but we miss the competition season and talking to others in the pit. That’s why we’re excited to hold a 971 Ask Me (Almost) Anything - AMaA on Facebook Live! We’ll be going live in just 2 minutes and start by showing a 2020 robot teaser and then a panel of 971 students and mentors will be available to answer all your questions (with the exception of the 2020 robot - some secrets are best left unanswered!)

I’m pretty disappointed that they didn’t reveal anything about the robot. I’m not sure what would motivate them to not do a reveal. I hope it’s just that they don’t have enough footage or something.


No one knows about the status of the season, and if the upcoming 2021 season will reuse existing 2020 robots, or slightly modified 2020 robots, etc. Therefore it makes sense that they aren’t making their robot details public yet, just like quite a few other teams.


On the AMA, they specifically said that they haven’t posted anything due to lack of footage or access to the bot.


Well played, 971. Now that we know the game is being reused, I understand why they would choose to not reveal the robot.
