Week 3 was a week of steady gains, as fabrication continues for the robot. Bumpers have been fashioned and are ready for use. Our drivers have been practicing on robots from former years, especially our 2010 robot. We bought new batteries and chargers. The chargers have arrived and are currently having powerpoles put on them. Thursday was 8th grade recruitment night at our school. We demoed our robots from 2006, 2009, and 2010. Many interested 8th graders came by to check out our robots and to learn more about FIRST and what we do at FIRST Team 604.
The production of our robot is coming along, with the chassis built and the scoring mechanism well under way. We received new batteries and have crimped and wired them to be compatible with our new chargers and our robot. Reviews for the various award submissions have begun.
And our robot teaser for this year is out! Join the discussion on Chief Delphi here.
