Final Week of Build

Team 5172 is getting excited but also nervous that this is the last week to finish up the robot and be ready for competition! Last weekend we moved the robot to our practice field at DRB Fabrication owned by Don Brekke of Greenbush, MN. Here we have our arena all set up so we can practice going over the obstacles and work on our shots! On February 16th as we were testing our robot, we had some visitors. The visitors were Duane and Nancy Olsen. Eldon Sparby, our High School Principal and also a mentor for our team stopped by too. Duane and Nancy were very interested in learning and seeing what the robot is capable of doing. They liked how the robot can move over the obstacles. They were also very amazed by how detailed it is from scratch to finish. We are planning to go to the Week Zero competition this weekend in Grand Rapids. It will be a GREAT test on our robot build and we are super excited!
