Sunday, March 6th. Post Standish-Sterling.

We made it to Semis as the second alliance captain!! We had some technical difficulties our last two matches that are being fixed.

Our team won Chairman's!! We're super pumped because this competition had our harder competition (for both robots and Chairman's), with a bunch of experienced teams going. 

Our student, Anne Johnson was selected to be a Dean's List Semifinalist!

Overall, great weekend!

Monday, February 22nd. Almost Bag & Tag!

It was a big day today! The competition robot was finished, and the team got in some driving practice before bag and tag on the 23rd. 

Electronics finished wiring the turret, and tested all of the components thoroughly. 

Programming continued working on autonomous, and tested all of the code.

The Mechanical team added a front bumper and adjusted the tension on the treads.

Electronics completed wiring the practice bot.

The programming team finished their code, so the practice bot is driving!! Woohoo! This is a huge milestone in the build season!

Thursday, January 28th. 19th Day of Build Season.

Mechanical team tested the intake roller with the motor chained out on arm, which unfortunately didn't work. They also began assembling a prototype with a PG motor inside two different sized PVC tubes. 

Electronics had to rebuild the base of the electronics board, as it broke. They powered through it effectively, however!

The programming team had a brief meeting covering basic functionality and prepping for tasks to come.

Scouting reviewed processes for competition and introduced some new members to the system, so at competitions, scouting will be easier and smoother.
