Here we are on Day 2 of build season and the team is working like maniacs!
After watching yesterday's release video, a thorough review of the rules and specs this year, and a very successful brainstorming session, the team has settled on what features this year's robot will have.
Today, TroBots are working on the belt spacing for the new robot competition chassis, reworking the test chassis (so it mirrors the competition chassis), creating the intake elevator/belt system to move the cubes, repairing and installing programs on some of our laptops, and building our practice scale base so our robot has something to climb.
As of yesterday's kickoff, there were 3,652 teams in 27 countries! Competition should be fast and furious this year...we can't wait until our first meet on March 9 & 10... Stay tuned for more updates!
