Thanks to all who joined us for kickoff. It was a great, if tiring day, and we have some exciting challenges ahead of us.
At the meeting today, we agreed to meet as a team on Monday during lunch to refresh ideas and review the video/game/rules.
If you couldn’t make it, you can see the release video here: https://youtu.be/VqOKzoHJDjA
We talked about the following ideas:
Drive train: tank tread with spring-loaded suspension, large wheels to overcome rough terrain, rotating wheel pairs to manage rough terrain.
Boulders: throw via catapult, or throw by spinning wheels.
Low bar: If we can keep our robot shorter than sixteen inches, then we can get under the low bar. Manage that and get the ball to the goals, we have a pretty functional game.
Other obstacles: We still have not figured how to manage the other obstacles

Take some time to look for info from Robot in 3 days
Also, here’s a video showing a shooter: here
We have a lot to do from selecting a design and prototyping to getting some thank yous taken care, of, buttons and shirts made, and more. I look forward to a great season with you all.
See you Monday.
