New this year, FIRST is allowing 6 hours of prep time with our robots prior to competitions. Thursday was our first unbagging before our competition at WPI. To make the best of our time we created a project plan and assigned jobs to team members last Sunday.
Thursday night Shawn reviewed assignments, everyone knew their jobs, and all tools and equipment were ready to go the minute Natasha came out of the bag!
The team made quick work of adjustments to the thrower arm, and with new software uploaded and a bit of debugging, Natasha was ready to go. The thrower was working well, but the bubble of excitement burst after a few throws when the ball punctured and slowly deflated. Duct Tape to the rescue!! See more of our nights adventures below.
CAD Mentor and number painter extraordinaire Dana hard at work! Thank you!
