The robot is working well, and the few problems we had were quickly fixed.  During our practice matches today, it seems like things were really finally coming together.  In some of the practice matches, we scored 38, 46, and 58 points all by ourselves.  We actually left the pits early tonight, because there was nothing left to fix, and nothing to work on!  If we can keep that up, tomorrow should be pretty interesting.

HHS Robotics at the Herndon Festival

The team brought its VEX field and outreach booth once again to the Herndon Festival! We staffed continuous games with ‘square-bots’, small, remote controlled robots for all ages. Hundreds of people saw our booth, interacted with our members, and learned about what we do as a team!

Our team members also volunteered to help staff the 5K/10K race on Sunday, June 5th.
