A New Season and the First Week

Welcome to the new season of FIRST Robotics. Last Saturday, the new game, FIRST Steamworks was revealed. The Steampunk themed game features two alliances of three robots attempting to get their airship’s roters spinning by shooting energy, aka wiffle balls, into the boiler and getting gears onto the airship. At the end of the match, the robots must climb a rope to board the airship.

Team 2959, the CW Tech Robotarians, have been working hard this past week. The team has been setting up at the team’s new base of operations at Eagle Technologies. The design team has come up with a possible design for the robot and the build team has been working on prototypes for the wiffle ball shooters as well as building the practice field. The programming team have been working on the Pixie Cam and the Navex and the electrical team has been learning the ropes of their jobs to come.

We, theĀ Robotarians, would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Eagle Technologies for allowing us to use a corner of one of their facilities to build our robot in.

All in all, it looks like an interesting year to come.
