2017 Week 2

Week 2 was what Team Dave would consider a “quiet” week — however, there was still plenty going on! We’ve been making small changes to our robot design and begun to work on pieces for our competition and practice robots, including gearboxes, shifters, shafts & much more. We’ve also modified some of our prototypes after learning more about how certain field elements behave. We’ve experimented with mounting some of these on a prototype chassis and formed some skeleton code. We’re expecting and hoping our sheet metal will be in on Friday so our mechanical and electrical teams can get into full swing.

Admin has been making solid progress on a variety of fronts. We’ve begun work on our Chairman’s essay and started to brainstorm ideas for our Chairman’s video and Digital Animation award submission. We’re also creating presentations for some new sponsors we want to partner with. We’re also making some changes to our sponsorship levels, so for current sponsors, stay tuned!

One third of the way through build season, Team Dave is making steady strides.
