pic: The CI Borgs Team 4006 Robot with a Twist



OK. so being a 3rd year time the CI Borgs have come a long way from where they started.

The Robot with a “twist” refers to the turret mechanism on top of the machine. It rotates 300 degrees and allows the team to shoot from various locations without worrying about lining up with the goal.

Throughout their practice sessions it’s been a nice stable platform for both harvesting and shooting

The team is looking forward to the SBPLI Long Island Regional at Hofstra next week.

And interestingly enough, the turret weighs under 45 pounds and is installed with 4 bolts.
