The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Number of students seen with hands in the robot at this time: 2 from the School of Life.
Number of CD threads about how there shouldn’t be mentor hands in the robot: 0, CD isn’t a thing yet.
Number of students inspired by this robot team?

I’m sorry, but I don’t have time to count that high!

The mentors are arguing about whether programming has weight. Apparently the robot is just over by a few grams.

Who needs bumpers when you have Pepsi?

Student: “We are ready for a water game. We have a periscope!”

I can only imagine what “The Beast” does…

Nevermind that Coke is better than Pepsi, the Comic Sans on that banner is the real crime here!

How convenient of them to put a Tube to
Put there Pepsi cans in.

After realizing defense can win championships, Team Hammond installs a diesel powered drivetrain to maximize pushing efficiency.

Hammond Robotics. Famous for their robots named The BEAST: Beatty Engineered And Student Tweaked.
Four time world champions. Inspiring FIRST since 1996.

Hey, you in the green jacket! Get out of the vibration beam!

Here we see some of the dumbest students on the team. I mean, they’ve been left back 71 times, combined…

They’re building a rocket, but it’s small enough that they can launch it indoors.

The ultra high velocity T-shirt mortar robot was way too far ahead of its time…

Bald, left: “So why’d you go for the Pepsi sponsorship?”

Blurry greybeard: “You know how Coca-Cola removes rust? Pepsi does the same for glovestains”

“Ghee-burger, ghee-burger.”
“No Coke, Bepsi.”

I’m sorry, I’ve been distracted by the hilarity of Libby’s charity streaming for St. Jude.
