Week 1 (January 5th – 11th): Saturday the 5th was reveal day and the team was excited and ready to go. Right after reveal we went back to school and went straight to work. We dissected the rule book to its deepest core and have begun working on the design/CAD, outreach for sponsors, and construction on this here website. Thursday was our first long practice (going 12:30-1:30 then from 4:00-8:00). It is these practice sessions where our work really begins to take off. We have created a basic model of the robot and begun our designs for the claw and lift. With the foundation in place, we look forward to much more productive practice sessions in the coming weeks. Week one has been complete and we are ready for the season ahead.
