Whew, first week of Build Season, complete. Before the recap, big shout out to the parents and mentors who assembled many of the field elements for us, thank you all so much!! We really appreciate all your hard work.
Over the past seven days, we’ve developed robot concepts, started designing them, and modeled these ideas on Onshape. We prototyped with rollers to make a horizontal intake, started assembling the intake, began to put together a multifunctional telescoping arm, tested out a promising shooting strategy, and devised layouts and a new wiring set-up for the robot. Programmers attempted to get autonomous paths to work and made progress on the AI game-piece tracking project. The operations team, after brainstorming ideas and analyzing previous essays, began to work on a rough outline for the Woodie Flowers Award and the FIRST Impact Award. In marketing, we made new cheers, discussed the cheer team logistics, and created timelines for upcoming events as well as contacted those lending their artistic abilities to help design our banners and booklets.
Anyway, that’s all for this week and keep your eyes out for our video recap!
