2017 Week 3

With our sheet metal in, Team Dave has been hard at work this past week. We’ve riveted the chassis of the drivebase on both our practice and competition robots, and are making heavy progress on building up the practice bot. We’ve wired up the major components for the drivetrain, and had it moving around Saturday afternoon. We’re hoping to have most of the mechanisms working by the end of next weekend. It’s been a little quieter in our workshop due to our exams, but everything is moving along nicely.

The admin team is gearing up for a presentation with a new sponsor once the practice robot is nearly done, as well as reaching out to many potential sponsors. Plus, the first draft of the essay is beginning construction, as we start to move ideas from simple bullet points into a more comprehensive form.
