TOWER TAKEOVER: 2019-2020
For our second year competing as the VEX U team WHOOP we switched our focus to make the team more accessible to more Aggies. Our robots, Jimbo and Jumbo, made it all the way to the South Texas state finals and we were able to cheer on our sister team, WEVEX1, as they qualified for the VRC world championship.
TURNING POINT: 2018-2019
This was our first year competing as the VEX U team WHOOP and our first major competitive project as an organization. We were driven to create a pair of excellent machines and managed to take our robots, Fuego and Rev, all the way to the VRC world championship.
