Last Thursday, we had our first meeting of FRC and FTC at the same time. It was really exciting and a little crazy!
The FRC students worked on a lot of different tasks including putting a new (aluminum) spacer on our wheel. Shout out to our mentor, Jonah, for making it at the Tech College. We wanted the aluminum spacer because, at the State Fair competition, we busted a wheel and our plastic spacer basically disintegrated.
We also got in some last minute practice and decided on our drive teams for the Minnesota Robotics Invitational which was Saturday. We made some new match scouting sheets. We found another driver to get everyone down to the competition as well. This was a very stressful situation that we were glad to arrange.
There was a lot of activity up in the computer lab. Karl and Thomas were assisting the FTC kids with their programming. Bryce helped the FTC kids get a chassis together and they started building an arm and a dispenser for practice. Kacy, Heidi, and Lacey (along with Sam from FTC) got them a Twitter @FTC7799 and a blog. Be sure to follow them and check out the blog.
Bydlon, the head coach of both teams, was really worried about having a joint meeting but it literally could not have gone better. All the team members were working together and getting so much accomplished!!
