Progress Report

Hello fellow Millerbots

Last week we had a wonderful week full of building, we also made great progress and we hope to continue the trend.  We are close to perfecting the manipulator and we have started to build and perfect the elevator.  We also hope that we will begin to drive the robot by the end of the week.

Build Season Begins!!!!!

Hello Parents and Millers,

The past two weeks have been busy for us. On January 6th the new game was revealed; its name is Power Up, harboring mechanics similar to 2015 Recycle Rush. The goal is to get power cubes(covered milk crates), put them onto scales/switches(small and big see saws), and gain power-ups . Our goal is to reach the scale (which is 6 feet off the ground ) and consistently place the power cubes onto the platform.


End of Pre-build

Hello parents and members,

 

This Wednesday marks the end of prebuild, where we teach safety to both old and new members. Last Saturday a couple of our members went to SPLASH, where they learned about making their robot prettier, how to build faster and a lot more efficiently, as well as diversity.

 

We hope to see you during build season!


Prebuild Update

Hello members new and old,

 

During the past few months the robotics team has been hard at work on prebuild. Around the end of October the new members went from working on vex/small scale robots to the real deal. Creating a robot that would have to follow tournament standards. This allows the members to get a feel for how we work together, letting them learn how the sub-teams work. This includes building, wiring, coding, driving etc. The goal is to include everyone and help them make the choice of what sub-team they want to join, also giving them basic knowledge on how to build in general.

 

Go Millers!!
