Here's the latest on the robot:

We worked until almost 10pm at NGHS on the Snow Day, the robot is now "bagged" (not officially, but no more working on it).

Today, Wed., Feb. 18, we will bring all of the materials and the robot over to Lanier.  We will organize the materials and tools, and get ready for building the "twin" robot.  I anticipate staying until 5 or 6pm each night until the twin is built.  We then have to get very good at rebuilding it, over and over.  Why?  Because we did not finish the NGHS nor Lanier robot, and will need to do rapid repairs on the first day of the Tournament.  Ever see a NASCAR pit crew?  That's the idea.

It's never too early to get started prepping for next year.  In fact, after State TSA, all future robotics team members, when not building or coding, should be doing these tutorials:

You should be able to design a lot of our robot, in Inventor, before the school year is over.  This is the key to improving our team, so be a leader and start now!
