2017 Rheumatologist - "Ruby"

Ruby participated in FIRST Steamworks, where she put large yellow gears onto pegs and climbed a rope in order to get ready for take off. During build season of this year the team was actually able to practice with Ruby and fix a design flaw with the climb mechanism. This year was the first time in Robodox history where the team qualified for both VEX World Championships and FRC World Championships.

2003 Dentist

2002 Surgeon, MD

The Surgeon participated in Zone Zeal, where robots had to move goals and balls into various zones to earn points. The robot was unable to turn until we wrapped zip-ties around the front wheels to stop slipping. The Surgeon was also named the “Marriage Destroyer” because 3 mentors forgot about Valentine’s Day while working on the robot.

2001 Drastically Overcomplicated Team Operated Robot - "D.O.C.T.O.R."  

Our first FRC robot, independently built as Team 599, participated in Diabolical Dynamics, where robots had to score into two 7-foot moving goals in the least amount of time. The first time the D.O.C.T.O.R. got on the field, it was put on backwards and slammed into the player station! Later, it broke completely in half.

2000 Bender

Bender was built when Granada was still a part of a 5 team coalition and the “RoboDox” was known as Team 359. The robot wasn’t built in the famed K2, but rather in a special effects company in Chatsworth. The main student that worked on the project, David Haas, was legally blind.
