For the first time ever, our robotics team decided to attempt the challenge of building a robot in 3 days! It’s a lot different from our normal 6 week period because we only have three days to accomplish so many tasks with less than half of our team.It’s definitely going to be a big challenge, but it’s exciting as well! The excitement will continue to grow when day one comes to a close.
Today is our first day and we are treating it like the kickoff of a normal season, except we already know the game. We’re using this years game, Power Up, as we have all the field pieces, so we don’t have to spend time building new ones. Because we already know the game we will be able to begin building, which is especially nice because we need as much time as possible to accomplish this tremendous task. With our great attitudes and work ethics we will definitely be able to do this!
We have just a few members for each subgroup, possibly even just one for some of them. There’s people for strategy, building, programming, media, and driving. Today is mostly focused on come up with a strategy for ideas on how to make this all work in three days without a hitch. With the mentors giving helpful input and playing devil’s advocate, we are sure to do our best though it might be basic. We’ll just have to see how it goes in the next few days!
