Week 1: KICKOFF!

Our build season has finally begun and the gears of competition are now turning. The week was filled with prototype design, construction, and presentations. Prototypes were first designed in groups on Sunday, January 8th, 2017 with cardboard, and it was followed by five days of work sessions in order to create the prototypes out of wood. As of today, the prototypes have been presented, and now our mentors and members are deciding which prototype(s) will become the basis for our competition robot.
