Team 2471 Cuts through Competition

On October 9, in Wilsonville, OR, the local FIRST Robotics Team 2471 (Team Mean Machine) had their first in-person competition since quarantine started. They brought two robots to this event, Artemis (2020) and Apollo (2021). Apollo struggled due to drivetrain issues, so unfortunately we weren’t able to see much from it before the team turned their focus to Artemis. This strategy paid off, though, as Artemis ended up in the winning alliance! Before losing connectivity almost completely by the end of the day, it was able to show off a high-speed shooter, autonomous aiming, and practiced driving. We’ll next see the team shooting t-shirts into the crowd at the homecoming game! (Submitted by Ayla Crowell, team president)
