The 2014 YETI Team


In 2014's game, robots would try to score points by launching yoga sized balls in large overhead or floor level goals located at either end of the field. Additionally, a 5’ tall truss was located in the middle of the field where the robots would pass the ball to another robot or human player.  The goal of passing the ball was to have it in possession of a robot or human player in as many divisions of the field as possible.
