Choosing between lifts
Going over the different parts of the game 
Hey supporters of the Intimitrons from Area 51! 

Kickoff 2020 has finally begun and the theme for this year's game has been released: Infinite Recharge! Players will have to access a control panel, shoot and score power cells, as well as climb a generator switch in order to save First City from impending asteroids. 


After the opening ceremony hosted at the Central Library, we headed back to the university to begin planning for the new season. After examining the different components of this year's game, the group decided to prioritize climbing followed closely by shooting and accessing the control panel. Through further discussion, we decided to use an extendable forklift as our main mechanism to climb. Unfortunately, the new rules didn't allow us to create a three-robot lift as we initially intended.

Our plan for the upcoming week includes building the main body of our robot using the given chassis in the kit of parts, as well as install a basic electrical board that will allow us to drive the robot. Our goal is to have a functional, mobile robot by next Saturday!
