Team General

Thank you Romain and Knieper families!

A roller toolbox and workbench were donated for the team to use.  This will make it much easier to organize the room.

Woodworker needed!  

We need to build adjustable dividers for the workbench drawers. This will allow us to store all kits and spare parts more effectively.

If you know someone that is interested in helping out that has the skills and the tools to build what we need, have them call Coach Seb.

We have our first Java program up and running!!!!

This is great news, our Pushbot is now working and we can use what we have to start working on our teleop and autonomous program.

We are learning how to leverage sensors. If you are interested in learning Java for both FTC and FRC, start researching online how to integrate sensors into our robots!

Main focus right now will be to support the FTC team.

A Trello board will be developed shortly to list what needs to be done in the next few months in preparation to the upcoming season in January.

Enjoy your week.
