2011 Robot: Complete

2011 Robot

After six weeks of creativity, challenge, and fun, Team 971 is proud to have completed their 2011 "Logomotion" robot, name TBD. The robot was bagged/tagged Tuesday night, after being worked on by the team programmers at the Poofs' Lab at NASA. Team 971 would like to extend our thanks to the many sponsors, parents, and mentors that made this robot possible. Currently, there is more work to do on building the practice bot and getting ready for competition in late March/April.

Work Day

The team will be staying late tomorrow, Friday, in the lab to finish the robot in preparation for the Saturday and Sunday scrimmages. Work starts immediately after 6th period. We need help on many different projects, so please come!

For anyone who may have forgotten: Ship Date is next Tuesday, February 22nd.

We are in the final stages of assembling our robot! We have all our parts in and are working on putting everything together. Time is really crucial this week, since it is less than a week until Ship Day. Team members as well supervising mentors have been staying late all this week and making huge progress on the robot.
