A typical high school robots team spends 6-8 months preparing and planning for a robotics competition. Team start from conceptual sketches and move all the way along to a finish, fully-functional robot that competes for the highest score and best rank.

In January of 2014 VEX® Robotics hosted Build Blitz, a fast-paced robot build-off that aimed to take all 6-8 months of work and cram it into a straight 72 hours of building!

Working with VEX® Robotics, I got to follow Team Copioli and document all of the work their team accomplished in the three very short days!
