Ramping up for the third week from Kickoff

January 20th marks the start of our third week from kickoff! We have completed many of our tasks including field piece construction, award essay submissions, and initial robot design! Our team is working hard to ensure that we have ample drive practice before the Magnolia Regional on March 13th. Every person on the team is assigned to specific tasks according to their lead position. We are more productive than ever!

Our Design/CAD team as officially FINISHED their chassis design, and have started machining in on our CNC. They are almost completely done with the intake and shooter design that we will soon implement.


Our Build/Fabiration team has finished building the (scoring) field pieces, including the speaker and amp. This week they will begin robot fabrication and start building the stage field piece!


Our Controls/Programming team is currently working on vision tracking and autonomous strategy and implementation with one of our test bots called "the pizza box."
