Week Three – 2014 Build

DSC_0017We’re already halfway through build season… That fact is both exciting and terrifying at the same time! Thank goodness Up Next had yet another crazy but accomplished week! This week, the electrical team had fun assembling pneumatic systems for the build team and assisting the programming team with targeting. A few members from the build team and CAD team worked together to begin construction of a “mechanical arm” to pick up things from the floor for our veteran in Nebraska. A lot of progress was made on our offense mechanism yesterday and the build team is getting very close to finishing robot #1!

The Chairman’s team covered a lot of areas this week ranging from working on The Hero Project, designing a new trifold, and creatingDSC_0033 our 2014 Chairman’s book. The Chairman’s team is officially in the revision stage of the essay! In addition, they also took a “field trip” on Friday to visit Ron Gulick to test out various prototypes for him.
