The Countdown 12/06/2011
Well we literally have just a few days until the competition. Everyone is working hard to pull everything together. The cooler is finished (and is very cool - no pun intended, haha) and the robot operators, builders and programmers are working hard to complete the missions successfully. We are adding some additional time to the practice on Wednesday and will practice again on Friday and then on Saturday it's SHOW TIME! We've gotten our shirts and I have to say they are awesome. (Brandon!)
Mr. Malik came to observe and offer more advice and guidance last Friday and that was awesome. He is always very helpful and gave us some great technical advice. It was also Coach Geyer's birthday, so we had some cookie cake to celebrate. YUM.
Thanks for following our progress and please go like us on Facebook!
Almost There! 12/02/2011
There are only two more weeks until the competition!! We're working hard and doing our best to prepare.
Well, it is the middle of November and here is where we are so far.
We have chosen our jobs, created our team name (as I'm sure you noticed on the home page), and designed our t-shirt.
Our builders have almost completed the board and are hard at work on the robot. The board looks great so I can't wait to see how the robot looks. I think programming is going to begin soon also.
Our researchers have been hard at work researching our project which is affectionately known as the "super cooler". They learned all about building a circuit from Coach Steve, but when they were about to start building it for real, they discovered that the solar panel was broken in shipping. FAIL! So they had to ship it back and get a new one. Hopefully this week they will finish the cooler.
Check back at the end of the week for more progress and some information about some of our team members!
