Its Getting Better

Well its is getting closer.  The shooting arm is installed, the motors are wired, we have run a few balls through our system…and we have broken the motors that are supposed to lift the arm…So more problems to solve.

On the positive side of things, we now have our primary and secondary drive team’s selected.  And we get to go practice this whole weekend on a field…Awesome. Thanks STEM Action.

Today we were planning on splitting our team up so that our coders could work on the robot and the rest of the folks work on the items from the list below.  unforeseen issues arose and we had to cancel our trip to Columbua. Super big bummer. Let’s see how much we get done before we head up tomorrow.
