We’re Still Working

Thank goodness we have a twin. We put a lot of effort into getting our competition robot into the bag on Tuesday, and now comes the time to finish assembling the twin, and to practice driving it.

We bagged and tagged just before midnight, and then spent the next little while cleaning up and getting organized.

2015/02/img_1150.jpg
We’ve got our withholding allowance material to keep working on but we’ll have a few good nights of sleep first.

Good work K-Bot students, mentors, friends and family! We’ll send out an email when we know our schedule for the next few weeks.

Still here!

Robots are growing, but that’s happening secretly
2015/02/img_1063.jpg
We’re making lots of brackets and spacers to keep things attached and moving smoothly.

2015/02/img_1065.jpg
We had a group hacksaw fest and gave everyone a workout.

2015/02/img_1066.jpg
Our field is all set up now, ready for practice time.

Robot Valentines Day

We had a field trip to find fasteners.

There weren’t any boxes left so we had to count our quantities, and luckily we got the “box price”.

This is also our last meeting in the school. We packed up all our tools and headed to Transformix.
