Wow, okay, so a lot of major things have happened since the last update. First of all, the robot is even closer to completion, and there are all kinds of new fancy schmancy doodads and whatchamacallits on it! Then, we voted on the design that will be on our T-shirts for this year, and, last but not least, we have decided on what type of theme we want for our drive-team costumes! Pictures, of the robot, shall be down below!
Okay, but back to at least somewhat technical robot talk. We are using a tape-measure based climbing system for capturing the tower, and a squat design meant for stability. Not to mention squeezing under the low bar.
A week or two late on the update! Oh no! Our site manager really needs to get the trained monke- I mean content management team in line. That being said, we have a bunch of news!
Big thanks to FLL Team Lego Catastrophe for coming to visit the shop, and bringing the team some yummy treats to get us through our long work day Sunday!
The Chairman's Award team has been pulling some serious work together over the last two weeks, and this will be our last meeting before we have to upload it. Everything should be all set up now, and the final countdown has begun.
In other news, the build team has successfully constructed all necessary field elements, and the majority of our robot constructed. A name has not yet been given to this robot.
Pictures below have been designated at clearance level 0. Civilians may view.
