We got started with a big strategy discussion.

We discussed some more alternatives to play the game. We analyzed the different ways to get points, and the amount of time that we think it will take to do different tasks. We looked also at the experience of the teams, and the number of teams that we’ll meet at our regional too. It’s tough to make strategy and design decisions.

We got to work, making our last year’s robot drive and carry a stack. We wanted to see how stable totes and bins are on a driving robot.

We programmed the robot too. It’s exciting for new programmers to make the robot move. To accomplish all of the programming tasks we needed to split up into sub teams to cover robot code, vision, and database.

We’re presenting our ideas, and seeing if we can combine some of them.

We’re making lists of pros and cons of all our ideas.

It’s fun to work together to build and test new components.
