Grant High School, FIRST Team 3636 is making a lot of progress!
General Robotics is finally rolling! Each team is busy with multiple projects with their respective skills. By week two, design team has designed parts of the robot in conjunction with the build team. Electrical and build teams have also been working on constructing a seesaw and have finished a middle sized hoop. Build has built a prototype of the shooter we plan to use. Software has been testing Java code on our old robot. Marketing is working on a press release in order to release to the press, as well as coordinating sponsor presentations. Our pit is being designed by marketing and design team.
Both design and programming teams have been struggling with learning new software. A major challenge has been scheduling. Different mentors have been available at times that students aren’t available and vice versa. Design team wants to give a shout out to Kevin, our mentor from Autodesk. “I think we finally have some momentum,” said Hamzah K., student leader of marketing. “I hope we can keep it until bag and tag.”
