Week Six – 2013 Build

The week began with the actual driver’s test. After our sponsor showcase dinner,  students took the controls to show their best driving skills on an obstacle course designed to simulate game challenges.  Congratulations to our 2013 drive team: Jack, driver; David, controls; Colin, drive coach; and Peter, human player. Programming and controls field tested the robot and started work on autonomous. Final revisions were made on Woodie Flowers and Chairman’s essays. Promotional materials were completed and test printed. The week ended with a trip to Lee’s Summit High School for a practice scrimmage against other Kansas City area teams. While we were there, we realized additional work needed to be done on our shooter in order to attain greater accuracy. With only two work days left before Bag ‘n’ Tag, we have a lot of tasks to complete.
