Last night we had the pleasure of having Congressman James McGovern visit us during our regular meeting. He had the opportunity to see our students working on the robot, programming, writing their essays, working on CAD, and also working on scouting.
The programming team is showing off their vision sensing. This is how they plan to detect cubes and drive at them during autonomous.
At the end of the meeting the congressman talked to our students about how impressed he is with what he saw that night. He said "What you are learning here is going to serve you throughout your entire life... It is unbelievable, I'm just amazed!" He later said "What you are doing is special. I wasn't joking when I said I smell victory. I expect big things from this team."

The goal is to make it easier to find the part you need without having to visit dozens of different websites.
The team would like to thank its generous contributors:
