2015- Recycle Rush

It was a great competition season for Metal Muscle. The game this year was to make a robot that could pick up and stack totes and top them with recycle bins. I know, I was skeptical too…. How could that be a fun game?  As the build season commenced though it was great seeing our team pull together with ideas and plans.  Once competition season started, we found out how this challenge could be a fun game!
