Kickoff has come and gone, hope some of you saw it!  I went to pick up the parts on Sunday afternoon, so it's time to build!!!

On Monday we will watch the video, share the links and updates, review the parts.  This week we need to decided on our priorities, and responsibilities.  What are we capable of?  What do we need the robot to do?

Tuesday we can finalize our priorities.  What should be our strategy based on the following:
  • what is the optimal scoring?  That is, what is the most points for the time we have, what are we capable of, what might other teams do?
  • check our KOP
  • check motors in our inventory to see which are legal
  • consider prototyping

We will also be meeting after school on Wednesdays, for additional time but also to allow some others to get involved if they'd like.

If you want, you can focus your Academy time on this as well, which is a lot of total time during the day!

Because we're spread over two class periods, and we will have some after-school people, we will be splitting responsibilities into teams, and planning around a common schedule.

Deadline for build is Feb. 22, so we have about 5 weeks, let's go!!
