The objective of Ultimate Ascent was to score as many discs into the corresponding team’s goals. The endgame objective was to have the robot climb a pyramid near the middle of the field. This season, we competed at two regional competitions: Boilermaker and Wisconsin. We also qualified to attend the National Championship in the Curie Division, and participated in the quarterfinals with teams 1717 D’Penguineers and 234 Cyber Blue.
