Ariel-Assist-Logo  In 2014, our robot, DAVE (Drives Around Various Engineers), was a long distance catapult shooter that could truss from anywhere on the field and score all the way from the center zone. Team 135 won the Crossroads Regional in Terra Haute, Indiana, along with fellow alliance partners 1108 Panther Robotics, 5188 Area 5188, and 4269 Cardinal Bots. A few weeks later, we also won the Boilermaker Regional in West Lafayette, Indiana, with alliance partners 3147 Munster HorsePower and 3301 Patriots. We also won the Judges’ award for our community outreach including WIT (Women in Technology) day and our PRIDE Summer Camp, among other events. At nationals we participated in the Curie Division and ranked 8th out of 100 teams, and participated in the quarter finals as an alliance captain, allying with team 1241 THEORY6, 11 MORT, and 68 Truck Town Thunder. Thanks to all of our partners and competitors for such a successful year!
