2018 Season Week 2 Recap
Jan. 14 – Jan 20
The SuperNURDs had a productive week. The Software team finished working on subsystems, PID and most commands. The Mechanical and CAD team completed the design of the drive train. The cascade lift and intake are in-progress. CAD has also completed the latch assembly. And there is a working prototype of the triple threat. Several students are halfway done with a benchbot. The Electrical team has a checklist ready to purchase materials. The Field elements are all constructued and in place. Great job to the students on all that heavy lifting! The Business team has dived right into crafting award submissions and updating the team website with this year's seasonal updates.
This week, Two Caterpillar representatives came to visit our robot workshop and chat with the team. We shared our progress and presented them with a CNC handmade Thank you plaque for their gracious donation and support.
We want to thank Mrs. Brown for the generous donation of meatballs which Mrs. Kamman turned into delicious team meal this Saturday. The hungry students and mentors are very grateful for your support and your garlic bread.
