FIRST Team 4125, located in Umatilla, Oregon, is in need of mentors. If you know someone who can help with the team — contact Coach Heidi Sipe – (use the form on the next page). They can use help with electrical and mechanical. This is a great way to show your support of the FIRST family. Here is their update:
In the second week of our build cycle we accomplished a lot. Our prototype robot is nearly done, and we are about 15% done with our final robot. The biggest problem we are facing is that we do not have enough mentors, or people who are certified to use the machinery.To be honest, we can see our member motivation diminishing.
On a brighter note, our marketing team is doing great. We have completed our website, created facebook and twitter accounts, and generally all of our tasks are getting accomplished. We would like to send a big THANK YOU to Bob Goetz (for doing an awesome job) and to all of our sponsors: AutoDesk, jcpenney, NASA, Oregon FIRST, the Umatilla School District, and the Oregon Department of Education.
