Welcome back to a wonderful day at the Flurb workshop.  We again have many things to do today and not a lot of time to do it, so it’s going to be a blast!  First thing is the business team will be working on today’s blog post (#breaking the fourth wall).  We’ll also be working on trying to fix a Cricut air 2 so that will be fun! The building team will be working on the robot–that’s right with 15 days till bag day they will build 2 robots: 1 prototype and the competition one. This represents a pretty hefty task list, but with a positive attitude, they will get it done. The programming will be working on coding and working on the calculations for Limelight. It’s pretty involved, but I’m positive they will get it done. So that’s all for Team Flurb today!

I would also like to mention The Times Herald, our local newspaper which recently published an article about our new BWARA practice field. They did a great job with it and really highlighted the collaboration which created the space. If would like to read the article, please click on the link below.   Have a nice day, and as always, stay tuned for the next Flurb post!

Welcome back. Today was filled with lots of fun. Our team made our way down to the BWARA practice field to set up field elements. We had a blast setting up and are one step closer to finishing the field.  While we were constructing the field, the building team was working to finish the final design for our robot. So that will do it for today. Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s post.

Welcome back! Today’s is going to be fun as we have lots to do. First thing first…our business team has a lot to do so that will be fun.  The building team is again working on the final design for the robot. The programming team is working with Limelite. It’s a vision/camera program and the coders are trying to figure out if the robot can recognize the vision tape.  They are deep into intricate math calculations to determine the appropriate angles. Sooooo, that will do it for today. Stayed tuned for next week’s post.

The programming team is working on a CAD model, our build team is working on the level 2 platform for the robot to climb on and testing an idea we have for a ball/hatch gripper. We also had a blast at the kickoff event so that’s all for today.

Welcome back! Our team is working on many things today.  The team is working on  the swerve drive. The build team is trying to make the swerve drive code better today. Last Sunday we got to test the swerve drive and, let me tell you, it worked great! The programmers did a great job coding  it. Another thing our team discusses today was what our team wanted to do with our team shirts. It looks like we are going to be changing it quite a bit, so thats all for today but make sure to tune in for next week’s post.

Welcome back to the blog! Today we are working on many things . First off on the behalf of the whole Team 5843,  I would like to thank Henshaw for helping us build our  brand new pit so we can perform better. Another thing we are working on is our programming. Our lead coders,   Matt and Angela are working on the swerve drive code, which is essential in programming so this robot can move.  So that does it for today.  Make sure you stay tuned to next week’s post.
