Steamworks Build Season Update I
The second week of the 2017 FRC build season is off to a good start. The JV and Varsity teams have already started on their unique ideas. Varsity is planning on making a climbing bot that specializes in gear scoring, while JV is taking a more traditional approach with a low ball scorer that also climbs. Each team is hard at work, Varsity already has a basic prototype up and running, while JV is taking the more thorough approach to their design.
The three-day robot was a giant success with proving that robots can, in fact, climb a rope! It was also a huge benefit to our design and CAD teams, in letting them know what works and what will need modification.
