We are half way through the build season. Progress this week was slow.
Prototyping is coming to a close. The only thing we have left to prototype is the final manipulator used to grab the milk crates. The ideas are there for this manipulator but a final decision needs to be made. The prototype drive train and elevator are working. A group of students have already started building the final drive train. We should have that up and running this week.
Students will be working on the final elevator and designs this week. We need to have a final robot ready for mock inspection on Feb. 9th at Becker High School. The HUB is bringing in a few of the actually inspectors from the regional.
On Feb. 6th there will be an Open House for parents and guests to come in and see what the students have been working on. We will also have computers setup so parents can register their students up on the FIRST website. All students need to be registered on the FIRST website before we can compete at regionals.
