McCarthy and his team mates spent nearly 6 weeks designing and building the Cat. After a day of fierce battle, team spirit and camaraderie, Team 3958 was overjoyed when the judges announced that the BC High team won the Imagery Award. This award is selected by the judges for attractiveness in engineering and outstanding visual aesthetic integration from the machine to team appearance.
