Latest News

Build season week 2

Sunday, January 19 2020 by

Week two is in the bag as they say.  Drive team tryouts have happened and drive team 1 and 2 have been selected.  Progress is happening on our Chairman’s essay and interviews have taken place for our presentation team.  From all I have heard it will not be an easy decision to narrow down the field.  The robot Drive base has been decided on and fabrication has begun.  Our mechanism sub teams are working hard on Design and CAD as well as getting a jump on manufacturing.  For more detailed information on design and build click our wiki link.  Work is progressing on our scouting app and field build for rally is progressing and the plans are coming together for another successful preseason event. 

A shout out to Chris Sowden and Katie Hastings 2 alumni that have come back to help mentor the team that brings our total active alumni mentors to 5!

Build Season 2020

Sunday, January 12 2020 by

Build season week one has come and gone.  Strategy has been discussed, mechanisms debated, prototypes and proof of concepts shared.  CAD has begun and our robot vision is slowly taking shape. Chairman’s essay writing is going full swing and video blocking and storyboarding has begun and our incredible field crew has been hard at work building a field for this year’s Rochester rally.  Interwoven with all this work are shared meals, laughing, learning, bonding and just having a good time.
