Practice - 3/17/22

Posted on: Fri, 03/18/2022 - 09:31 By: 6570comms

After the first competition, we have begun working on reviewing our progress and seeing what else we can do for the next competition. For the first twenty minutes or so of practice, Coach Welling, Coach Gapp, and the mentors asked the students what they thought they could improve and the dialogue helped them come up with a few goals for the time between their competitions. These goals include replacing one of the motors, fixing a broken wheel, upgrading our autonomous programming to ensure more points during matches, and much more.

Team 6570 went to their first 2022 competition this past weekend and did an amazing job! The kids worked hard to set up and practice Thursday night so that they could spend over 12 hours each day at Milford Friday and Saturday. On Friday, matches began! Scouts furiously gathered information on other teams, the technician and pit team stayed ready for any issues the bot would encounter, and the drive team secured several wins for the team.
