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.
Come to our New Member Meeting and learn about everything the HHS Robotics team does. There will be pizza and presentations about each aspect of our team – come to find out more where you can help and have fun! We do more than just build robots, there’s bound to be a part of the team you’ll find interesting. Bring a friend and get involved!
