Programmers worked hard on learning new skills. Many experienced K-Bots have been helping others learn.

Our custodians joined us for lunch today. They are an important part of keeping our team going…they’ve got to be at the school whenever we are!

Part of the goals for the week include building a mock up of the field for testing purposes. We took our list to the hardware store to pick up the necessary supplies.

We learned the difference between nails and screws….and also picked out some good boards.

Many hands make light work! We loaded the wood into our workshop so we’ll be ready to start measuring and cutting on Monday.

It’s time to start thinking about bumpers! We did an inventory of supplies and made a shopping list.

Thankfully we have enough pool noodles. They’re always hard to get in January!

We took time during the day to keep tabs on the FLL Provincial tournament. One of the teams mentored by K-Bots is there representing the Kingston area. Good luck girls from Team High Tech!

Our manufacturing capabilities are increasing year to year. We are now making use of our 3D printer and CNC mill to make parts for robots and prototypes.

It’s never too early to learn how to document ideas!
We’re glad to see our K-Bots in training picking up some good skills while they visit us.
