“The Big Tickle” was the only bot at the the Pittsburgh regional FIRST Robotics Competition that tried climbing all the way to the top rung for 30 points.

Though we lost both quarter final matches, and thus were out pretty quickly, we did win a Judge’s Choice award at the end of the day.
Here’s a video of the first time our bot did its thing, taken Thursday by one of the other mentors.
