The BEST robotics has kicked off and Arvada West looks to meet the challenge. The students this are tasked with creating and developing a "space elevator". This scale model will involve the robot ascending a 10 foot shaft and be expected to manipulate objects such as 2-liter bottles and random shapes. The idea is that they are moving material from earth to space. The task is difficult but the A-West robotics team is ready!
