Exciting Progress on our Preseason Projects!!

We have all made excellent progress on our projects for our pre-season!

Electronics tested their talons, and were also troubleshooting some problems that our previous robot had.

Programming continued to work on writing the code for mecanum wheels, and their rookies worked on learnign how to write code for West Coast drive!

Engineering rookies learned how to CAD a chassis, while veterans finalized the designs for the battery cart and a BasicBot that uses mecanum wheels.

Engineering veterans will also start construction for their projects by our next meeting!

Meeting the Rookies!

Today was our first meeting with our rookies for the year! We were all very excited, and as an icebreaker, did the Marshmallow Challenge!IMG_0279Rookies and veterans were grouped off, and had to construct a structure made out of spaghetti, duct tape, and string that could support a marshmallow. IMG_0276Our members were very creative with their approach to the challenge, such as forming the spaghetti into triangle shapes!IMG_0280 (1).JPG Other groups experimented to see which design would best complete the task.IMG_0277Overall, we had a very fun time, and cannot wait to work with the newest members of our team!

Preseason Projects!

Today, we had a very productive pre-season meeting!

Our Engineering department worked on the design for our new battery cart, and will start building it soon! IMG_0198

Other members of Engineering worked on designing and CADing the chassis for the basic bot, which will use mecanum wheels.

The rest of Engineering worked with some of the SciBorgs, and focused on learning how to use the CNC!
