Union High School sent in their update:
It’s been a productive week for FIRST team 3712. Final designs were put into place on Monday, and work on the chassis was nearing completion on Thursday. “We hit a few problems putting chain on the drive motors,” said team member, Coby J. “but it’s almost done, and it’s looking pretty good.”
Work also began on the electrical wiring, and programming. Our programmers have decided to try out Java this year. Riley S. said “It’ll be hard at first ‘cause we don’t know what we’re doing quite yet, but our mentor has experience with Java, so he should be able to help us out some.” The programmers are hoping to have a test program ready before the chassis and wiring are done. Guess we’ll see what next week brings!
