This week, we decided on having our team image consist of bowties. Thanks to the PR team for thinking up three great ideas. They’ve also been hard at work drawing out team standards to display our team logo. They’ve been playing with many different design ideas. Thanks to Mallory Pounds for designing both of the main ideas. The CAD team finished the designs for side plates. We sent those designs to Alcobra Metals in Spokane to be laser cut. Now, they’re working on doing the m
Another week hard at work. Our prototyping has continued, and we have finished a version of a ball shooter. We have also done some work for a ball pickup system. The CAD team have been designing the side plates for the robot. These designs will be sent to Spokane to be “laaazer cut” (their words, not mine).
Everyone is hard at work as we continue the process of prototyping the various designs of the robot. Our electrical team took the morning to connect the pneumatics module while diversifying their perspectives and listening to music. They are now assisting the drive base team. Our drive base team is prototyping different designs and installing volcano tread wheels to test their capabilities. We are also working on prototypes for a kicker, ball grabber, and a scaling mechanism.
It may look like winter outside but students on the Kettle Falls High School robotics team are excited that the build season has officially begun. This is the third year that Kettle Falls High School has been involved in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics program. Team 4980, the Canine Crusaders, made it as far as the Portland, Oregon regionals in their first year. Their second rookie year saw them compete all the way to the World’s
