Here is our competition for this season:
Hello, my name is Wesley Coats and I am the current Team president of Team 5268. The first week of build season has been a whirlwind for our team. From finding out what game we are playing this year to the largest snowstorm to hit Kansas City in the last 5 years preventing us from having an organized meeting last Saturday. This season is shaping up to be a quite successful year with one of our largest teams in recent memory and quite a bit of experience on most teams. Currently we are all focusing on the design and mock-up page. Design team is working away on CAD designing our robot. Kick-off Saturday the team decided to go for filling an entire rocket ourselves. Our original idea for an intake was designed and mocked up, but while in taking the cargo popped it and took us back to point A.
Our business team has been probably or third most active team currently focusing on awards, website and marketing strategies for competition. Our sub-section of our business is all about planning our regional we will be hosting here at Olathe South High School. The Programming team is currently focused on getting a basic autonomous plan in place and ready for our robot this year. Electrical is our youngest team this year and is currently focused on teaching all of our younger members the basics and getting ready to do their part on the robot.
Looking ahead build team will start building our brand new, octagonal chassis and mocking up a few more game pieces and parts for the robot. Business will continue working on our awards for this season and marketing. Programming will work on Autonomous and targeting for our robot. Electrical will do more of the same as well as work on a possible board design and getting a line follower all figured out. Lastly design team will continue along with Mr. Smith focus on getting this robot designed and ready to have plans handed off to build by the end of this week.
Check back Monday, January 21st for our next update.
