Daily Update

As the build season continues to fly by, we continue our work not only at the shop, but there is a lot going on behind the scenes as well.  Our financial and marketing teams have been working hard to find sponsors. They have come up with a system where businesses and individuals, depending on what they decide to donate, will be put into a category and receive the benefits listed under the appropriate category.

All sponsors will be recognized in the school newspaper, community newspapers, as well as other programs included with the 5172 robotics team.

Our safety team has been busy working on our safety manual. Since we were a rookie team last year, we didn’t have anything in place as far as this went. So this year we hope to develop a top notch manual!  We have plenty of ideas thanks to the generosity of veteran teams that we met last year, and now we are putting them all together.

Our build team has been practicing driving the robot at the shop as they wait patiently for the construction of the arena to wrap up.  The next few days our programmers and builders will be working together to get our lift system perfected.
