This year's Senior Game challenge mirrors a tennis court: the robots have to clear a table top of tennis balls and water bottles. More points are awarded if the robots carry the balls or put them in the designated box on a second, adjacent table top. We built a robot that had a conveyor belt with velcro on it to pick up balls as the robot moved across the tables.

For the BottleSumo challenge, a robot has to push a partially filled 2L pop bottle off the table OR another robot on the same table.
