It’s alive.

We have put in over 110 hours during weekdays, weekends, and holidays designing and building a robot for this years game. We finally completed our robot today, the robot build deadline, although we didn’t get much time to test our robot we are confident in our design for the upcoming Finger Lakes regional on March 17 & 18 at RIT. Thank you to all of our students, mentors, sponsors, and parents for their support during our 2017 build season. We hope to see you at the regional.

Sponsor Thanks

Thank you to our sponsors whose contributions have come in so far:

  • Hansen Contracting
  • Sally Schaertl
  • Zimmerman &Tyo Attorneys
  • Manchester- Shortsville Lions Club

 

Team Update

Here is an update of what we’ve been doing.

Sponsorship letters have been sent and we are sending out thank you letters to those who sponsor us.

We have been making things in CAD like a frame for the robot, a mechanism to grab the gears, and a mechanism to grab the balls.

We have prototypes for a climbing mechanism and a ball launching mechanism so far.

We have also started our fundraiser and we are selling meat sticks for $1.
