First FIRST Robotics Participation on March 6th-8th in Duluth
SHPE-TC has been supporting the Cristo Rey SHPE Jr. chapter in its first participation in the FIRST Robotics contest. They report that the robot is completed and is sent out for competition March 6-8 in Duluth. As this was their first year, there was a lot of learning by mentors and students alike. They made a functioning moving robot controlled by a laptop which is a good achievement for a rookie team. Some additional design was made for manipulators on the robot but the design was finalized late in the game and they ran out of time to complete the extra designs that were set up with the time they had. They are currently trying to do a follow-up meeting with mentors and students when they get back from Duluth, MN to complete the rest of the manipulator design that was intended and it might be a good opportunity to video this 'hands-on' activity. The team name is "Los Clásicos" (pictures not yet available, but artwork is). For more information, visit: http://www.mnfirst.org/frc/duluth-regionals.
