  • 2023 Season Is Upon Us

    23 January, 2023

    As we come into Week 3 of build we are amped up knowing we have a pretty solid design. We are waiting on a couple of items to arrive and we can continue working on the arm. For now, we are finishing the grid Team Element, and beginning on the turret base for the arm.

    We have been supported by fantastic meals while we are in this build season, so "Thank you!" to all that have provided thus far, and to those who will be providing in the future.

    Yep! 2023! It's here! Kick-Off is done. We now know what our competition looks like. We have 60% of our robot design done for this season and are knee-deep in build. Drive train pieces are painted and going together. We are trying to get ahead of our schedule and get more planning done in parallel with the build.

    We have a lot happening in a short time, because we also landed back-to-back competitions. We have the Utah Regional the first weekend of March and the Central Valley Regional the weekend after that. That's a lot of driving.

    This coming Monday we will be attending Mica Mountain High School's Computer Science Night, from 5 to 7pm. Today we are prepping to make sure the robots are running, and orgaizing the build room for kick-off on Jan 7 and in prep for build season.

    All right, we've done our demo's at the previously mentioned areas, and had a blast at each. Acacia says they're doing another in Spring. We hope we'll be in town for it to attend again.

    Hello all. We have been remiss in keeping this site updated. I'm going to try to remedy this some. We are working towards understanding our tools and build environment. This includes the CAD and programming software. With several new students this season, we are having a good time learning and training.

    We've been to a couple of events this season. Last night was our most recent at Esmond Station. Our next will be at VailFest on 12 November. After that we will be at Acacia Elementary for their first STEM night on 18 November.

    We also have several pictures, from this season and previous, that we will be attempting to upload regularly to populate the gallery pages. I have been very behind on this effort, but would like to get there to share images of what we do and who we are.
