Making Plans for Summer

Posted by Lori Dale On April 16, 2019 Comments Off on Making Plans for Summer

After a couple of weeks to rest up, and for our students to get caught up on their homework, the Gearheads met this week to plan for the next few months. We have a fairly busy late spring and summer planned. Our next big project is to build a showbot for parades, assemblies, and similar events. We are thinking about putting a t-shirt cannon on it, so be watching for pictures of the project as it develops.

We are designing a chassis somewhat like this with a t-shirt cannon on the top

We also are also looking forward to our summer competition in Duluth (The Gitchi Gummi Get Together). If you know of someone who is interested in checking out FIRST Robotics and our team this would be an excellent time for them to do so. This competition is designed for teams to train in new members, and old members to new roles, and is a low stress and low-cost event. Our team always has a good time there.

Last year, we took home the 3rd place trophy, the year before we came home the winners!

Be watching for more details of our spring and summer plans!
