It’s the end of Week 4 of build season. Prototyping and designs are finalized, and work on assembling the robot has begun.
Here’s what the sub-teams have been up to in the last week:
Build: The build team has finished putting together the practice chassis and have moved on to gluing the actual chassis together. In addition, drive practice and tests have begun for the selection of this year’s drive team.
PR: PR has been busy! They’re in the process of editing the Entrepreneur Award business plan as well as preparing their presentation of the Chairman’s Essay. On top of that, they’re continuing to scout for sponsors.
Programming: Our programming team is also working hard. They’re beginning to put together and deploying the robot’s code for the practice bot. In addition, they’re wrapping up the scouter input for competition.
Media: Media is hard at work on the Chairman’s interviews and continuing the Fed-Ex Challenge on the side. Robot Reveal is beginning to be planned to signal all the Saints’ hard work during build season, and meme team is working hard to keep the spirits up.
CAD: CAD finished the standard for the flag as well as the DXF files allowing the laser printer to cut the pieces for the robot. On the side, the shield project is nearly complete and the new computer for the club is almost complete as well.
