This has been a long, hard week for the SuperNURDs. A lot of cold, late nights with the students working outside on their new practice field. You can find the students bundled up to keep warm while they fine tune the lift commands and PID. This week Software also automated all the set points on the collector lift. The Mechanical team finalized the climber and the practice bot is finished. The competition bot is 75% done. Electrical has completed wiring on the practice bot and is currently wiring the competition bot. The students are hard at work on practice and competition bumpers. Fabrication has finished all the components for the competition bot. Filming of the robot reveal video has begun. Business team wants to give a huge THANK YOU to Mr. Levier who printed off a ton of beautiful buttons. The Business team finalized and submitted Entrepreneurship award. They sent out welcome emails to the rookie teams who will be attending the San Diego Regional. In between button assembly and helping out with bumpers, they are preparing materials for competition. And doing a little cleaning when the WIFI went down on Saturday.
