Almost there 

With only a few days left in build season, the robot is in its final stages of development. CTO Michael Justin told us, “After 5 weeks of prototyping and development, we finally settled on a final design. All of our hard work is finally coming together.”

Kickoff!

2016 is the year of Stronghold for the FIRST Robotics Competition! From taking down enemy castles to damaging defenses, this year holds great promise for our team to show our engineering creativity. We are getting a running start this year and beginning trade studies today, and we expect to be prototyping within a week. Whether a student is fabricating parts, building a model of the robot on CAD, or developing code, these next 6 weeks promise many opportunities to learn through both success and setbacks. Good luck team 4276!20160109-dsc_0332_24271217316_o copy

12/1/15 Training Session

At tonight’s training session, members of the team learned about the website, as well as how to disassemble our previous year’s robot, Geir. Freshman Liaison, Avery Levin, was quoted saying, “We are giving Geir new life”.  Students learned how the robot comes together and gained experience using tools. This was not only a helpful learning experience, but also had the practical benefits to recycle the parts to build a test robot.
