Good morning!
We are approaching the annual STOP BUILD DAY. This year, Stop Build Day is on Tuesday, February 123rd (two weeks from tomorrow!!). Much has been accomplished in the past week, and we expect much more to be accomplished in the upcoming week. The build team is beginning to construct the robot! Our programmers are working hard to get the code in place for its operation. Additionally, the CAD team is still working hard to make quick changes to the robot design before it is physically constructed. I have attached a copy of the CAD drawn robot design. Pictures of the actual robot will be sent at various points throughout the week.

We have had a great FIRST week of the Build Season! This year, more of a dedication has been put to reading and understanding the rules, determining a strategy, and working with Computer Aided Design. Below are updates on what each sub-team has accomplished this week. 

  • Programming - Our programming team is working to get the fundamental code for the general operations of a robot. This includes visual abilities such as 'seeing' reflective tape. This will be absolutely necessary later in the season.
  • CAD - The CAD team has been working on putting together the chassis within Inventor Pro. By doing this, a robot will be able to be designed and tested on the computer. This will help us to get a better understanding of the bot before it is actually constructed.
  • Build - The build team is working to construct the chassis. They are also working to determine the best robot design. 
  • Media, Outreach, and Strategy - The Media and Outreach team has worked this week on reading the rules multiple times so that the team has a resource for questions concerning the rules. These members have also spent time working on game ideas. Questions asked include: How can we gain the most points? What is a possible and plausible game strategy?

It is imperative that all members understand the ideas and rules of the game. The game rules can be found at https://www.2838eaglebots.org/filehost/2016-Manual.pdf.


Here are some pictures from this week:

You will also be able to decide what you want to do within the team. This will also give us a chance to get organized before the kickoff. Our meeting will be Monday, October 5th, 2015, from3:15pm to 4:30pmAll of our meetings take place in the Robotics Room which is located next to the Conference Room in the east wing of the building. I will send out another reminder this weekend. Thanks!!!
