Our robot is starting to come together. Our claw has been powered up and controlled by the electronics. It appears to pull in the ball very well. The robot has been driven around a little bit and now you can start to see the upper structure come together. In the next week we hope to complete the arm and start to get the alien built.
Last night we successfully submitted our Chairman's Award. It is submitted as an essay and goes over everything we do as a team during the year. When we get to competition we will have a presentation and then find out the results of the award.
We are selling tickets to the Worcester Railers game on March 9th. Tickets are normally $27 but we are selling them for $24 which also includes a Railers hat. If you are interested in attending please contact a team member or email email@example.com.

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:
