Clean Sweep

2587D Division Finalists Led by Nick Dulworth and Michael Dinh.

Round Up

At the time we had two Homeschool teams, 2587D and 2587Z. 2587D was the "A" team and was lead by Nick Dulworth (Junior) and Michael Dinh (Sophomore). They were World Finalists in Clean Sweep. 2587Z was led by their younger brothers, Peter Dulworth (7th grade) and Lance Dinh (8th Grade). 2587Z won numerous competitions and awards during the regular season, but they did not do very well at worlds.

Gateway

The Team
In Gateway 2587D split into two separate teams, 2587Z and 300. Team 300 was then led by Michael Dinh (Junior) and Lance Dinh (Freshman). Team 2587Z was then led by Nick Dulworth (Senior) and Peter Dulworth (8th grade).

The Robot
2587Z, or the MiniDragon, was designed for the interaction zone with an 8 motor drive geared 1:2 for speed on 4 inch omni wheels. To allow for this it also had a pneumatic powered lift.
