2015 Championships Robots on Parade

If one stands in the right spot long enough they will see every robot go by.  Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to capture everyone.  Here’s about 20 minutes of activity.

That’s all for Days 1 and 2.  I promise to publish Day 3 (Saturday) soon.  Don’t you want to know how we did?

Animations from Days 1 & 2

There was a lot going on during day 2.  Here’s a few animated gifs to try and show the excitement.  Because we were able to reach out over the platform we did really well scoring coopertition totes.  I suspect our drivers had something to do with doing well too.

2015 USFirst Championship Day 2

Day 2

Well its moving day and we needed to improve over yesterday.  Hopefully all of our alliance partners will show up today and help us out.  Yesterday our robot movements were much better due to replacing the joystick and reworking the left rear wheel as one roller was rubbing and it did not help when trying to go sideways or straight.  We started the day by attending the Mentor Breakfast where Woody discussed changes in how students are taught using electronic media, “robots”.  Woody says that the teacher’s roles will be changing to cover the human characteristics required of teaching while the knowledge portion will all be automated.
