This spring saw the conclusion of another exciting year for BotsIQ, with the main competition for the year taking place last Saturday. Slinger came away from the competition with some decent wins, including both 1st and 2nd place documentation awards, as well as the 2nd place competition award. Matthew Benedum’s engineering documentation for his robot Raptor earned a perfect score in all categories, a first for a Slinger team. Additionally, Raptor won the award for “Coolest Bot” for appearance. This is the second year in a row in which Slinger has won 1st for engineering documentation and another year of decent competition placement as well. Video will soon be available from the competition, so be sure to check back to the Nite Crier for a link when it becomes available.
