Week 3 Update

We are now half way through our third week of six to build a robot for this years game. At this time we have developed a strategy and are well on to starting to build the robot.

Programming

This year there is lots of options for autonomous mode. Our programming group has taken a practice bot to start development so that when the robot is ready for them they can have a head start. Thanks to Team 155, The Technonuts from Berlin, CT, for giving us the chassis, we really appreciate it!

Awards

The students have been working hard on our award submissions. While we don't have any pictures to show you can see them in the backgrounds of these pictures. There is a lot of excitment in putting them together and we can't wait to share the final products.

The Robot

The team has also been hard at work developing the plans for the robot. Below are two pictures of the students trying to piece together what it is going to look like and a quick mock-up of what we plan to build. Over the next several days we are going to start taking these ideas and building them.

Next week we hope to show off some actual robot parts that have been built.

Many members of the team have been working on a website for all FIRST teams to use. It is called Find Robot Parts and can be found at http://findrobotparts.com/.

The goal is to make it easier to find the part you need without having to visit dozens of different websites.
