Let’s Solve Water 2019 Preseason
Nine robot teams competed on October 13, 2018 in this year’s Xylem Let’s Solve Water Challenge. Teams had to design and build a laminar flow water cannon capable shooting a ~3’ slug of water into 6 buckets placed a various distances up to 25’.
Four $1000 Awards were given for:
- Most elegant design/appearance/presentation
- Fastest to hit all targets
- Longest distance
- Fastest to calibrate/hit first target
SparX Team-1126 won the Most Elegant Design Award
(note: after calibration we hit the target bucket on the first shot-- physics does work!)
