11/21/14 Meeting

Today Vikings Robotics held Training Session Number 4. Students learned about tools used in robotics and when to use them. They also learned about pneumatics and pistons and how this technology can be utilized on the robot. Pneumatics is technology that deals with compressed gas to produce motion mechanically, which includes the use of pistons. Remember, there are only two more general training sessions and one specialized sessions before our Mock Kickoff on December 18th! Our next training session is on Friday, December 5th at 4:30.
