It's a lot more complicated than last year's bot that shot basketballs and balanced on treadles. This year's robot had to be completed by midnight, Feb. 19 and locked into a plastic bag with locker ties. The team will compete in Lubbock, Texas the end of February and then on to Salt Lake City in March. Photo by TK Thompson/ladailypost.com
