2023 - TBA
(The Big Android)
After a couple of years' break from FRC due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the QLD Pineapples banded together once again to compete in this years competition: Charged Up. This year's robot has a tall, folding arm that retrieves and delivers cones and cubes from the Power Substations to the Grid.
2020/2021 - Jeff 2.0
Jeff 2.0 is 'Project Ezra's' (Jeff's) successor, using a very similar frame. This competition was called Infinite Recharge and spanned across the course of 2 years. This was due to the arrival of the pandemic and the competition being cancelled last-minute in 2020, and therefore, being continued to the following year as a remote competition. Robots score points by delivering power cells to the Power Port, rotating the Control Panel, parking at the Rendezvous Point, and activating the Generator Switch
2019 - Like a Bought One
'Like a Bought One' is the fifth FRC Robot created by the Pineapples! The competition this year was Destination: Deep Space and was an outer space themed game. The robots delivered hatch panels and cargo to the Rockets, Cargo Ships, and HAB Panels. The robot needed to reach higher than 7ft presenting a difficult task to achieve.
Robot X is the fourth FRC Robot created by the Pineapples! This years competition was called FIRST Power Up and was designed with video games in mind, requiring robots to stack Power Cubes in the Vault, and Balance the scale in their alliance's favour It's simplistic design was of great benefit to the team in this competition.
Project Ezra (often referred to by students as 'Jeff') is the third FRC robot created by Grace Lutheran College and the first robot since the team was renamed to the QLA Pineapples. Ezra features include a ball hopper, a gear bucket and a winch which was co-developed by St. Peters Lutheran College, introducing them to FRC level manufacturing.
Exodus One was the second robot created by Grace Lutheran College students and was entered into the Australian Regional competition in March 2016. At the competition, the team placed 27th out of over 40 teams which is very good for a rookie team. Exodus was designed to pick up a ball which was around the size of the soccer ball. When it had a ball collected, it should be able to traverse obstacles and shoot the ball into a goal. For one obstable the robot had to be under 40cm tall and this had a major effect on the design of the robot.
Genesis One was the first FRC robot to be created by Grace Lutheran College students. Genesis only ever entered one competition, the Duel Down Under. DDU is a friendship tournament hosted post-season so teams have a chance to use their robots again after the official season is over. The task that Genesis was designed to do was to load shipping totes onto itself and stack them as high as possible before off-loading them into a designated area.
