Week 6: End Game

Week 6 (February 9th – 15th): The build season is rapidly approaching its end date as there are 4 days left before bag and tag. A huge thank you and congratulations to the entire team for their diligent work throughout the last six weeks of the build season. From long Saturdays to late Thursday nights, the team has put in a tremendous amount of time towards completing the robot. The last four days will be used to put on the finishing touches and to test the robot and its functionality. Within the last six weeks, our team has built a robot, completed a Chairman’s award submission, gained a new sponsor, created this website, created work on the new team image as we are now the manatees instead of the eagles, and much more. The team looks forward to the first tournament of the season in Gainsville, GA on March 2nd and 3rd.

Week 5: A Strong Pace

Week 5 (February 2nd – 8th): The team has come to school every day this week and worked on the robot. We have made an immense amount of progress completing the claw and attaching both it and the control tower to the robot. The robot is inching closer to being finished and it is looking great. Thanks to our administration team, the chairman’s essays and video have been completed and have been submitted. The first tournament of the year is three weeks away, and our team is almost ready.

Week 4: New Heights

Week 4 (January 26th – February 1st): This week has been one of our most productive weeks yet. The team has managed to finish the electronics shelf and has built and tested a functional lift. Our plans this week to attend DE have changed as the “snow” day that happened Tuesday the 29th set them back in the building of the course. This does not set us back as the the team is ready for another work day this Saturday. On the non-robot side of things, our chairman’s presentation and video are coming together nicely thanks to our teammates on the marketing and administration team. The sun is shining bright and the team is showing no signs of slowing down.
