2017 Build Season Week #6 UPDATE

By Business Lead on Sunday, February 19, 2017

AHHH!! It’s our last FULL WEEK of build season! This week, we reminisced over all of the great things we have accomplished this season, in and out of the workshop.

Fabrication has finished mounting and fixing the shooter and tank to the base of the robot. Fabrication also fixed the rotor engagement and decided to make the doors motorized. Electrical and Programming worked on fine-tuning the robot and drivetrain code. Business was hard at work preparing for the Robot Unveiling Ceremony, ordering t-shirts for students and mentors, and designing steampunk swag for the team. Business was also in the process of working on the Competition Pit binder. In addition, Drive Squad tryouts were held this week.
