Competition Season Meeting

Meeting Date Meeting Time Location Attendees
Wednesday, January 14, 2015 6pm-9pm TCHS Brandywine Akhila, Josh, Trevor

Tasks Reflections
Drivers Practice
  • Trevor coached while Josh drove and Akhila operated. We tried doing practice matches and then we tried picking up balls, then lining up for the center goal and scoring.
  • The center goal is super reliable and easy to use!
  • The drive team went from doing it in 2 minutes to a minute, to thirty seconds.
  • Josh thought he did quite well at trying to score in the center goal as he had to position himself perfectly aligned.
  • They learned a lot, and decided they needed to work on "becoming the robot" and thinking as the robot would.
Repair Work
  • After using the robot for 3 hours straight it began to give when it came to structural integrity. There were many repairs to be done such as wheels, screws, and flaps.
