After the entire team collaborates on the design to compete most effectively on the game field, the BUILD TEAM brings the physical robot to life. Team members cut, drill, and screw pieces together to make the robot functional. They make everything required to compete—gearboxes, drive rain, plexiglass ramps, climbing apparatus, specialized wheels, metal grippers, and much more. Students gain experience using a variety of tools, CAD, and 3D printers. Of course, duct tape fixes everything at competitions!
