The objectives of Double Trouble were to position game pieces called “floppies” above the playing field. Extra points were awarded to teams whose robots could maneuver onto the “puck” at the end of the match. In 1999, Team 135 competed in the Great Lakes Regional, taking home the Best Offensive Round award for our robot’s performance. We also competed for our second year at the National Championships.
