The 2017 Build Season is Here!

 

This season of First Robotics is going to be a good one. The kickoff that our team held was a great experience for the newcomers to the team, as well as a lot of fun for previous members. The game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMiNmJW7enI) this year looks like a real challenge and Mars Wars can’t wait to show other teams our skills.  Before the event, we began with a game that has grown custom to the Kickoff events “Wackoo.” A game to help others learn the names and faces of their teammates.  Breakfast was served by Mrs. Stoecker and we are grateful. Afterward, we sat down and began to watch the reveal video. We printed off the rule book of the game and separated into different tables, each a different section of the rule book. While one senior member stayed at each table others switched every ten minutes to help circulate ideas. We then had a fantastic lunch Supplied by the Matthews and Ms. Johnson which we thank them for very much. Now that we had full a stomach it was time to let the planning begin. We separated into tables once again, this time with a whiteboard and dry erase marker, to create a rough design for a robot. The groups worked on their unique design and then presented them to the rest of the team to allow their ideas to spread and spark new ones. With Build Season Week One in progress, there are plenty of those ideas in use. Can’t wait to get started building prototypes and getting a feel for the robot for this year’s competition First Steamworks!
