GO DEEP! Team 8926, Combined IQ, would like to introduce "Diver Down"... an ocean-themed adventure. Teams will be pushed to the limit as they design, build, program, and run robots that "harvest" sea urchins from a deep ocean wall and score them in a collection trap. In the first ever challenge of its kind, robots will be required to collapse in order to "dive" under the 10 inch cave at the bottom of the wall during the final seconds of the match! HOPE YOU'RE NOT AFRAID OF THE WATER... The urchins will consist of rigid rubber with minimal compressibility. Each urchin will be 6 inches in total diameter, 3 inches for the diameter of the main sphere, and 1.5 inch spikes. There are 60 spikes per urchin! The wall is 12 feet wide and 2.25 feet tall. Urchins will be placed on three levels and multiple compartments of varying shapes and sizes. The caves are 12 inches high, 19 inches wide, and 18 inches deep.
