Pizza Ranch Fundraiser

Hello from Team 3313!

Yesterday we spent three hours busing tables at Pizza Ranch for tips. It started off slow, so we had time to learn what exactly we were doing without tripping over each other. Soon enough, it got busy, and we started rushing from table to table to clear the plates. Hands full of plates, with mashed potato and pizza sauce and gravy spilling onto our hands, we narrowly avoided running into little children to make our way to the sink.
During this experience, we met tons of cool people too. From talkative toddlers to eccentric opera singers, our night was never dull.

Hard at Work!

Greetings from Team 3313!
Today was a very busy day!

Everyone was hard at work today, with the robot's continued progress and the looming chairman's deadline just around the corner. We got a few extra hands to help with the chairman's work, and the programmers keep learning more and more.

The build team is busy building the frame and drive train.

Trip to Brenton Engineering!

Today we got out of school early to visit Brenton Engineering!

When we got there, we went right to a conference room to give our presentation. Each of us talked about the slide we had discussed, and it went really well!
After we showed our slideshow, we were taken on a tour of the facility. We got to see a bunch of the robots they were making and fixing, and we talked to some really cool people.

We decided to use the hour we had left at school to continue our work with the robot design and build.

Yesterday we took a team picture!!!

So it has Begun!

Hello again from Team 3313!!

Divide and conquer has been our motto for the past couple of days, and everyone has been super busy. Each member of the team has decided what part they are most interested in and have begun learning and working in each field!

The programmers have been learning how to program, thanks to the mentors and apps.
The build team is still taking apart last year's bot and furthering their progress on the robot for this year.
Chairmans have begun their projects, spending time figuring out what they need to do for each aspect and how they can get it done.

Everyone is super excited to continue building the robot and creating a unique experience!
