Well, it is midway through the build season. We are making lots of progress on our robot. The lifting team has gotten a working model lifting blocks. The gearboxes are fully completed and implemented into the robot. We are currently debating whether to build a climbing mechanism or depend on a powerup. everything is good
Will keep you posted
Well, Its finally build season! This years theme is FIRST POWERUP. So far, we have split into different teams working on the robot. We have build replicas of both the Switch and the Scale. We have been testing prototypes and figuring out the new mechanisms. This years game is unique because instead of set tasks for the robots, it is about timing, and use of the power ups, which can tip the game one way or another. Our robots battle for control of the Switch and Scale to earn points per second.
Well that's all for now....
Until next time,
Tonight we are working hard at getting important stuff done before the build the season in 4 days, where it can be working on fixing the robot and working on the skeleton and chassis, or working on build a new tool chest for us, or working on helping us raise money, even small stuff like walking around to find some way to help in any way possible.
