Robot Overview: The Bellarmine T-Shirt Cannon

Geek Culture

Not content with just another t-shirt cannon, the kids of Team 254, The Cheesy Poofs, built an amazing ten shot Gatling style cannon. With a rate of fire of 3 shots per second and a range of 150 yards, it can definitely fire up the audience.

I’m hoping they will bring it to the VEX World Championships and we can see how their range and muzzle velocity compare to the VEX T-Shirt Cannon.

The kids have posted a great deal of information, photos, and video about the robot, and why they built it on their website. Be sure to watch the documentary on the video page. It is very cool to see the kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math.
