Runner

This robot earned quite a bit of fame in its early days amongst the wider team. The junior team, with the help of Mr Allen, set out to create a robot that expanded from 18 inches to a 40 inch tower, eating barrels and balls as it travelled along and carrying them up internally. After breaking many pieces of metal, snapping thousands of rubber bands and hours of general frustration, the project was abandoned.

This was an NZ design robot which had a habit of twisting axles.
