This last week was a bit different from other weeks, hence why this post is being written on Friday. On Monday and Tuesday, the school district closed all schools for snow, meaning we were only able to come in and work for 3 days of the week. However, the build team has been working hard and putting in extra late nights to finish the robot in time. Currently, it is almost finished with a weekend and Monday left to finish and tidy up before bag and tag day. Meanwhile, our field elements team has finished building the rocket for practice driving. You can find a picture of it above with our robot from last year, Atlas.
The administration team has been working hard to arrange more outreach events along while also working on awards presentations. We suggest every team have a group of people working on a Chairman's award video and presentation, as the prestigious award is a sign of success and kindness, and it should be in any team's long term goals to eventually win one. While you may not win in your first year, it is a good way to get your foot in the door so improvement can be made for other years. That's the recap of our 6th week of build season, and we hope to see you again! Our next event should be concerning bag and tag day and the finished robot. Thanks for reading!
