BattleBots. Built by Centre County 4-H
Robotics, it used a plastic bucket to
smother its opponents, and won the
hearts of the audience and builders.
In its fight against Jaeger, the
powerful hammer dealt blow after
blow, puncturing the bucket and
reducing it to scrap. Thankfully, the
team brought a spare bucket. In their
fight against True Grit, they drove on
top of the lifter/sander hybrid, and
managed to yank out its power link
with its wheel. In the end, it came
down to Dorno and Heracross, with
the former taking the win.
Once again, the Northeast
Robotics Club put on a great event in
the Franklin Institute. Thanks to all
who helped run the event, and to the
builders who put on a good show.
