One of the items in the virtual kit of parts is roborealm image processing. Check out a trial here before we decide if/where we should download it.

At the meeting today, we agreed to meet as a team on Monday during lunch to refresh ideas and review the video/game/rules.
We will be riding to the kickoff at U of P in the school van and a few select parent vehicles. The attached form is needed to allow your child/children to participate in this event and ride in one of these vehicles.
Please come to dropoff with this form filled out, or scan/email it back to me.
I am posting the documents here, today, in their encrypted forms, so we don’t have to rely on the FRC web site bandwidth come kickoff day. At kickoff we will receive the password for these documents and can start analyzing the game.
Here’s the link for the streaming kickoff: Kickoff Stream

The kickoff event is coming this Saturday. Here we will learn the game, the rules, and get going on an exciting season. We have new space, new members, and now we’ll have a new game.
Full details after the break.
Here is the teaser for this year’s game. All details will be released on January 9.
Today’s meeting was extremely successful. We started in Mr. McLain’s room with a briefing and explanation of the prototyping exercise. The goal was to launch a ball from point A to a hula-hoop. Groups of 4-5 worked together to create designs then bring them to life using springs, surgical tubing, hinges, 2×4 and other assorted materials. Most groups went with the classic catapult design but other went for ballista and sling shots. While we did not finish our designs, we will continue on Tuesday, January 5th the first Tuesday after break, and will finish our designs and hold our competition. Thank you for everyone who attended and we are looking forward to the season.

Today, December 10, 2015, our first team meeting will be held. The meeting will go from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM and food will be provided. We will be going over tool safety and the use of large electrical tools such as the drill press and chop saw. There will also be a prototyping exercise where small teams will work together to create wooden devices to throw an object across the room into a target area. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
