Day 3: Fun But Exhausting!


We got to work on some non-technical aspects of our season right after school.  Our Chairman’s video has been started, and we’ve got a fundraising Bottle Drive planned for Sunday January 13th at noon in the KCVI parking lot.

Our two sub teams worked hard today, the mechanical group continued to design and prototype the climber and shooter mechanisms.  _IGP5250Some of us looked on AndyMark for parts…workingwhile others learned how to use CAD a bit better._IGP5274

Our controls team spent time learning programming.  workingOur goal is to have a test chassis up this week that we can program and drive._IGP5252

Field construction is also well underway.  fieldA big thank you to Wesley and Brianna who hand-sawed through 20 two-by-fours today!sawing

All in all it was a fun, but exhausting day!

Our next meeting is Wednesday at 5PM.
