As usual we are busy, busy, busy! Work was done on the One Wheel Shooter (there should be more information up soon about that). In the Media Cave, we worked on the Notebook. It is really coming together! It’s hard to believe how much information is packed in it! I started working on a PowerPoint that will hopefully be shown to everyone at some point during the off-season, or sooner. It’s basically an overview on how to write good, direct notes. Competition is coming up soon! I can’t believe it’s already here! We wish everyone luck and hope for the best!

It’s a lovely St. Patty’s Day Eve, and the team is still working hard preparing for the D.C. Regional! The mechanical side of the team is making quick and precise last-minute mods to our spare shooter and loading mechanism, while the media members are updating the team website and (huge) notebook, which has been quite the undertaking. I am so excited to see our robot actually compete!

Tonight a lot of work was completed! The One Wheel Shooter team completed their shooter. They used the CNC Machine to cut pretty much the whole thing out! Yes, the CNC Machine has been a great help this season (and will be for seasons to come!). I believe that this is the second One Wheel Shooter that has been made. Also, Jonathan finished up the drivers station and it looks really awesome!

Behold, the operator console!

Yay tonight we shot more of the video! Shooting a video is quite fun! More specifically we worked on the end of the video. Everyone had their team shirts on and we were holding tools and stuff. At the end, the Grandma finishes telling the story about how to make the Worlds Best Team and now we are all excited to get working! It was funny because the whole team was in this tiny room and we all had to run out to start working. Yes, it did look like a stampede and just to let you know, no animals (or team members) were harmed in the making of this video. I can’t wait to see the finished product!! Happy filming!

Tonight we worked on the video! It was pretty funny seeing everyone running around and shooting nerf guns. Most of everyone was shooting nerf guns although some of us were playing with rubber ducks. Yes, if you are on the team you can probably guess who that was :). You might say that this video seems quite childish, but that’s the thing! In our video, there is a Grandma who is reading a story to a group of little children about how to build the worlds best team! In the beginning, all the children are running around and playing, and that’s what we filmed! But we are not done yet, there is still a lot more to do!
