2017 Build Season Week #5 UPDATE

By Hamzah Chaudhry on Sunday, February 12, 2017

With Build Season almost over, students are working fast to get the robot done!

Fabrication has finished attaching the various special functions to the base of the robot with Electrical done connecting all of the wires and components securely. Meanwhile, Programming managed to squeeze in time to successfully test the code for the drive train and climber mechanism. Business is hard at work preparing for the Robot Unveiling and competitions after submitting the Chairman’s and Woodie Flower’s Award in time. The next focus for Engineering would be to clean up their work to make the robot look presentable and everything working as it should with Programming testing and finishing code for autonomous. Business will work on the submission for the Entrepreneurship Award as well as completing the planning for the unveiling and competitions.
