One-Third of the way through build season

This week the team worked on sensor testing, robot connection, prototyping, CAD, and field element construction. Members built three “defenses” for robot testing and software fixed the Iron Riders github repository. Mr. Ruff’s room has been very crowded as of late due to his class’s upcoming semester deadlines. We plan to pick up the pace as his students finish their projects, giving us more workspace. Next week we will begin constructing the chassis and the drive train.

We really appreciate the support we have been getting in these past two weeks. Thank you Peggy Confer for providing Wednesday’s wonderful dinner. Thank you Joe Farra for getting the team construction supplies. Thank you Daniel, Fitz, Keith, John, Mike, and Will for showing up to mentor. As always, thank you Mr. Ruff and Ms. Myers for having your doors open.
