Trash Trek 2015-2016: Our First Robot
This is our robot from the Trash Trek 2015 Qualifier. It is able to score about 600-700 points in the Robot Game. On the right is our robot game =========> Below are some pictures of our robot:
Our robot is an EV3 with two large motors for driving and a medium motor for attachments. The medium motor uses a worm gear to provide extra torque; this helps lift our heavier attachments. We use two light/color sensors, a gyro sensor, and touch sensor. Our passive attachments drop on to the front of the robot using blue axle pegs. Our robot also features a frame and flat sides to align with the walls.
Trash Trek 2015-2016: Our Second Robot
Our robot has gotten a major remake for the Qualifier! It is able to get 951 points in the robot game. It is an EV3 with upright motors to save space, and also features a clutch gear system inspired by Builderdude35 and Lego Vinir. We use two light sensors and a gyro, and also has a rectangular frame to align with walls and shield the light sensors. Below are some pictures of our robot:

Styrofoam makes up 20-30% of all landfills. That's a lot (obviously). Most of this Styrofoam isn't disposed of properly and can harm wildlife. For our solution, we are investigating mealworms; these are worms that can survive on a diet of solely styrofoam! They have an enzyme in their stomachs that can break it down.
