Week 6: The Finishing Touches!

FRC team 3313 Mechatronics has worked throughout the short weeks working on Guido the Robot. It's amazing how something that starts from an idea on a piece of paper can turn into something truly amazing and spectacular!

Looking back, we started by drawing out the ideas that each of us had onto a blackboard. Then from there we worked on melding these ideas together and applying the challenges that the prototype would face. Once we had the ideas together, we revised the final idea and started building right away. Over the next 2 weeks after getting our prototype idea down we started making the frame and wiring board for the robot. Throughout the last few weeks we've added and built onto the robot making sure that the robot was in fit condition to handle the obstacles that were put before it.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."

Another huge thank you to all of the people who have helped us throughout these short weeks. We can't wait to see what all of the other teams robots look like. Week Zero is coming up this Saturday and i have a feeling that we will have to make some changes on the robot. Don't be afraid of change. New things are good. We can't wait to see the other teams soon!
