Course description: Cougar Robotics has been a GSMS tradition for over 5 years with the program reaching new heights both last year and the year before by winning the State tournament and advancing to nationals.

design an innovative project and create/program a robot to compete in a series of challenges

(robot pictured above). It involves creativity, programming and problem solving while being

If there is any preference in teammates please indicate below. Our first competition is in November in Grand Junction, but we have a lot of work to get do before then.
