Behind the 'Bots

Behind every robot is a story. A story of late nights, endless programming, and a rush to get everything done in only six weeks. Learn more about the design, fabrication, and achievements of each of our robots from our rookie year's bot to our latest robot, Gus 9.

Gus Robotics Team 228 History Archives

Welcome to the Gus History Archives! At Gus Team 228, we believe that keeping a expansive archived history is as important as keeping our website up to date. As our team continues to grow and expand, we realize that this website is as much of a library of older information as it is a source of up-to-date news and multimedia. Literally hundreds of man hours have been spent researching and retrieving all the information here, and reposting it to the Internet.

One of the greatest advantages of the Internet is that information can spread around the world at the speed of light upon the click of a button. But unfortunately, much of that information only lasts for several days, weeks, or months. This makes researching things on the Internet difficult, as sometimes websites may expire or may disappear. At Team 228, just because the information is not current anymore, does not mean it will get deleted from our servers. All material on our website from previous seasons will be archived everything here, as this website will be as much of a library for our team as it is a method of communication.

When our team switched domain names in late 2003, we chose a hosting company that provided copious amounts of storage space and bandwidth, to allow for us to post as much content as possible onto our website. Now over three years later, and with even more storage space, our team is continuing to add more and more information into our website from our team's almost decade-long history.
