Our 2000 robot was built at Genesis Systems in Davenport, Iowa. We again finished in the top 1/3 at both the Midwest Regional and at the Nationals at Disney in Orlando, Florida, where the team was awarded the Autodesk 'Rising Star' Award for Excellence.
After the 2000 competition, Moline High School dropped out and we also lost Genesis Systems as a major sponsor. At this point, we reorganized and became known as QC Elite. We were then assigned a new team number, 648.
