Today is Stop Build Day! Our robot is completed and today the team is merely completing a final inspection before we bag it up. Although it is not everything we envisioned, our robot has turned out wonderfully! A big thank you to all of the student team members for their commitment and hard work, to the mentors for contributing so much time and effort to our team, to our sponsors for their generosity, and to all the team parents for their support and encouragement!

Even though this is the end of our build season, the Robotics season isn't over yet. Our first competition will take place Thursday, Feb. 28th through Saturday, Mar. 1st. Our second conference will be over the weekend of March 21st and 22nd.

We're on our fifth week with not much time left before we have to say goodbye to our robot - completed or not. Bag and tag is on Feb. 18! Several technical difficulties over the last week have set us back, but everything is starting to come together. With a good deal of hard work, we should have a functional robot on time. Pretty exciting!

Here's how she looks right now:

Some other team members are working on bumpers, etc.
