Today, the hall of fame was sent out to the print shop for final printing. We have decided to go with a printed hall of fame display for increased portability and professionalism.
Above is the final layout for the display. It will be printed on four 33″ wide panels each 80″ tall. Great job to everyone who helped, especially Ryan for leading the project.
Over the past week or so, we have been experimenting with a ramp-style minibot deployment.
After taking inspiration from some other teams including our friends on The Pink Team, we have determined that this is a potentially much faster method of minibot deployment. Over the next few days, we will work to come up with a final design and begin manufacturing.
This weekend, several team members met at the lab to prepare Shockwave the T-Shirt Cannon for its upcoming appearances. Shockwave will be traveling to Orlando for next week’s VEX world championship and to St. Louis for the FIRST World Chmpionship. In preparation for this, we created vinyl decals for Shockwave and built a crate. Shockwave will be shipped to Orlando tomorrow.
