Brunswick Eruption

We had a great time at our last offseason, Brunswick Eruption! Even though we didn't make it to playoffs, our freshmen got important experience working in the pits and scouting in the stands. We also competed with our new, second robot of the season, a team first. Thanks to everyone who attended!

Harvest Fest

While we had to change our plans for Harvest Fest because of rain, we still had a great time talking to visitors about the team and teaching them how to make bristlebots! We expect to throw a ramen party for the team and hope to see more visitors at outreach events in the future.

What's going on:

 

Subteams

  • Build: taught new members how to use power tools; worked on repairing 2016 robot 

  • Business: discussed sponsor letters and began to send letters to sponsors; planned meeting for parents

  • Design: designed ornaments for an upcoming fundraiser event

  • Electronics: worked on remaking the 2016 robot; prepared for the upcoming season

  • Media: started planning for robot reveal video

  • Outreach: planned gift-wrapping fundraiser; more newsletter training

  • Programming: began to teach new members robot coding; introduced GitHub

  • Safety: finished taking the safety tests; planed for safety video presentations 

  • Strategy: introduced calculating OPR
