The Robots >> Steamworks 2017 [Robot Code Name: Scorpio III/ Billy]
With three main ways to score, Edwardsville Technology developed a robot that could score using any of the three methods.
For the 2017 game, there was a steampunk theme and teams are required to shoot wiffle balls which represent fuel into a simulated boiler which transferred the generated steam into an airship in the middle of the field. .
Each alliance had one airship, which they pressurized with steam from the boiler and loaded with plastic gears from the field. At the end of the match, robots can climb and hang on team-supplied ropes attached to the airship for additional points.
