Halfway There!

We are halfway through the build season!  The Girls of Steel have successfully built two working chassis with a mecanum drive and six wheel drop center drive train.  Every team ranging from chassis to programming had to help out to make sure the robots worked efficiently. Luckily, we were able to bring our chassis to our practice field at the Ellis Armory to really test out the robots.  By the end of the third week, we were able to balance both robots on the bridge in the middle of the field.

Every team member has learned so much and we have grown very close over the past three weeks.  We still have many more hours to spend in the machine shop, high bay, and electric lab as we build our robot for the Rebound Rumble competition.

Our team still has so much we need to get done, but with such a big group of hard working girls, we know that we can get it all done in time for the competition!
