2017 Build Season Week #3 UPDATE

By Hamzah Chaudhry on Saturday, January 28, 2017

With almost halfway through the Build Season, it seems as though it is just flying by! The Business Division has sought hard for a location to have our Robot Unveiling Ceremony at the end of build season and is continuing to plan for awards like Chairman’s. In addition, Media was hard at work designing our competition shirts, taking pictures, and creating videos.

The Engineering Division kept vigilant at finishing the base and putting the drivetrain gearboxes together to perfection! After a seemingly long wait in receiving our parts, the base is nearing its completion leaving only the special functions to be fully constructed and mounted on the base. The Programming subdivision has also made great strides in developing the code by testing it on the test base in advance of the robot being fully completed.

A special shoutout goes to Taha Bokhari, Ryan Josloff, Jose Solis, Miles Jensen, Aidan Faino, Gianni Absillis (cough… cough… a mentor), and other contributors who promoted safety awareness within the team and throughout the community by creating the first, ever episode of a brand new video series called Sgt. Safety! View it here below:

And finally, please support us by shopping on Amazon via AmazonSmile. Every time you shop, a portion of the proceedings will go to us at no extra charge to you!!!

Get ready Week 4 because we are coming in hard!
