2015 Recycle Rush



recycle rush





Game Description:

This recycling-themed game required robots to stack totes and recycling bins to score points. Alliances could add to their score by properly “recycling” pool noodles in recycle bins and by using human players to throw them into the landfill zone.




Design Solution:

Our robot Gunther boasted two 6ft. tall towers. Each tower specialized in a different area of the game; the red tower picked up totes with hooks on a motor-powered chain, and the yellow tower held an extendable arm for grabbing recycle bins.
