Getting Back Into the Swing

The new freshman team members are here and the Daredevils are hard at work! Each individual department has began showing the new members on their department the ropes. Build is taking apart our 2011 robot, Archie. They are also fixing up last year’s robot, Alea, to get ready for the Minne Mini, a pre-season competition held in Prior Lake. Electronics and Media are working on their ICC presentations, a workshop at Itasca Community College to help other teams improve their skills. They’re also teaching their new department members about our goals and procedures. Strategy is hard at work creating preliminary match strategies for the Minne Mini. Team management is working on the logistics for the second regional, along with getting ready for the parent meeting held on Thursday. Programming is putting maximum effort into robot coding. CAD is teaching their new members how to use SOLIDWORKS, a design program that creates parts for our robots.

Overall, the Daredevils are extremely busy, but are also extremely excited about the new season! Let’s get hooked on robotics!
