Build Sessions – Week 1, Part 1

Tuesday, January 6, 2015

Tuesday, January 6, was the first full night the team could conduct a regular build season session. The majority of this meeting was spent in sub groups as teams began their work for the season. MARS/WARS team members began to fabricate parts for the swerve drive that will be used on the chassis of the robot. Students also worked on modeling prototypes in Creo, with the intention to complete these by Saturday, January 10. The electrical team conducted health checks on the team’s batteries to determine which will can be utilized throughout the 2015 season. In addition to this, the electrical team drafted an arrangement of the electrical board for the robot and the modeling team began designing it. The programming team completed the installation of necessary software and then began developing programs for the swerve motors of the chassis.

MARS/WARS conducted its first regular meeting on Monday, January 5. However, this meeting was cut short due to inclement weather conditions that developed during the meeting. The first 45 minutes of the session were spent conducting an all-team meeting, during which student expectations were reviewed. In addition to this, a tutorial of trello, the project management software used by the team, was conducted. Following this all-team meeting, students broke into their sub groups to set their goals for the week and select which team member would update their sub group’s status in Trello.
