Not sure how many of you have seen our new Adopt a Road signs on Consear Road - there is one at the corner of Head O Lake and one near Jeff's Road.  That is our stretch that we will now help keep clear and clean!  It is our way of giving back to the community!

We will be playing the same game as last year. You can use the same robot or modify it in any way you like. Rookies from last year will still be considered rookies this season with regards to the point system.

      Welcome to another blog post! There is quite a bit to catch up on so let’s get right to it. Communications has been working to get content for the first YouTube video. We are in the process of interviewing the different teams in order to get updates and peeks into the things they do on an average day. We have also managed to make over 250 buttons for the first competition. The build team has successfully constructed a working prototype of the robot. They are working to refine the robot and to complete the climber.

      At the beginning of the year, our team made specific deadlines to accomplish certain goals. One of these goals was to have a functioning robot by February 8th, and our team has worked hard to accomplish this. We have created an intake and a powercell shooter, but are still trying to attach these mechanisms to our robot. Coding has been able to get the two motors needed up to speed at a specific rpm and keep it steady.
