Week 3 It’s Starting To Come Together

Posted by Lori Dale On January 26, 2020 Comments Off on Week 3 It’s Starting To Come Together

The Gearheads just finished week 3 of Build Season. This is the mid-point in a traditional build season. With the elimination of “Bag and Tag,” some teams may elect to take longer to build, but we have decided to have our robot ready in time to test it out at a Week 0 competition. we are attending the one in New Brighton, the home of team 2052, Knightcrawler. This will happen on February 15 this year. Week 0 Competitions give teams the chance to test out their robots and drivers on a real field with other robots. Like all FIRST events, this will be free and open to the public. We will include more details in a later blog.

We are starting to condense components from 4 test chassis to 2. We are also beginning to prepare the final pieces for the competition robot. Here are a few pictures from this week.
