FRC 2012 – Week 4

Tuesday

Josiah continues modifying the launcher, assembling the two sides so it can shoot basketballs. Zak and Mr. Hauck are working on the wiring of the robot. No open wires means no safety issues. Along with wiring, Zak and Mr. Hauck are figuring out how to place our pneumatics on the frame of the robot.

Today, Nemissa and Nikki, completed the tiki men for our pit area at competition. They look amazing! We also have awesome team bios up on the website, with more to come!
