January 30th through February 6th

This week, the team worked on making up for the lost time due to the snow days. All the subgroups made many improvements, and we now have a welded frame, a moving minibot prototype, and a functional device to pick up the game pieces.

In addition to robot news, the travel plans for the New Orleans trip are being finalized so expect a parent’s meeting about additional payments and details soon. The team has also decided on the two winning button designs. The first is the robot with crossed arms and the second is a little robot with a line about bumpers. We also might be having a FIRST Lego League visiting us on Saturday to see what we do as a team. Hopefully we’ll be inspiring enough to make them want to join the team!
