Competition is near…

This is Payton, reporting live from team 2118A. With our upcoming competition on the horizon, the stress level has kicked up about 15 notches. It is usually around this time where our usual team camaraderie morphs into us threatening to bite each others heads off if something goes wrong. We only do it because we care…I promise. This specific competition is our last chance to qualify for the state tournament, so of course tensions will be high among us. We are pretty confident about our chances at this competition due to our kick butt autonomous, done by no other but the great and powerful….CHARLES MILROY! With the power he has granted the robot we hope to win the 10 point autonomous bonus, which will grant us the edge we want at this competition. Wish us luck! Payton signing... read more

Condition of The Robot

We are working the kinks out of the robot and finding a good amount of them, but we are solving them with the help of our other half (team A). We am now in construction phase and should finish fairly soon and then begin testing for the prototype of a four motor scissor... read more

How the team is doing

The team is doing quite well. We have finally constructed the arm to be able to raise on its own without skipping or the need to be helped by a team member. We made all of the parts into aluminum to make it lighter and quicker. The programming is coming along and is getting done. At the moment, we are making the claw to pick up the blocks and sky... read more
