In this year’s game robots pick up fuel( softball sized wiffle balls) and plastic gears(actually sprockets) to get points. Additionally in the last 30 seconds robots can climb a rope for more points. For more information click here


 

MN Splash

<

This Saturday, the 3rd of December, the U of M is hosting Splash. Splash is a full day workshop event for FIRST students hosted by GOFIRST Robotics at the University of Minnesota. The event is meant to help students gain a basic understanding of parts of FRC that they do not yet understand. This event serves as both an introduction to vital skills for those new to the FIRST Robotics Competition and a good refresher for experienced members.    (We highly recommend students go to this event.)

The sessions offered this year can be viewed here.

When: Saturday, December 3rd 9 AM-3 PM

This event cost $6 online and $9 at the door.

We will be carpooling to this event. Please email us if you need a ride or if you can give one.

The past two pre-build weeks were awesome. We had a great turn out and many enthusiastic new team members.

New members have been working diligently on the trainer bots, which are basic robots that help simulate what we will actually be building during our build season. They have also been learning about the daily tasks that must be preformed like signing in, unpacking the closet and cleaning up.

 

Just a reminder to parents and members the monster dash, which one of the big fundraisers we participate in, is taking place this Saturday the 29th.

We will be handing out water to runners who are running the 5k for the Monster Dash.
Our assigned location is the 5k Party City Water Stop, and we need to be there at 8:30 am (I advise you leave earlier to get there on time). Our shift will be over at around 11:30 am.
The location is the turn around for the race which will be near the Upper Landing Park on Sheppard Road, Very close the Science Museum.
   -Click here for a map of the race course. We will be meeting at “Half Finish”
   -Here are also the rough coordinates you can input in a map for directions: 44.941727, -93.098269
Parking should be relatively easy by the apartments near the river – or in the Science Museum ramp.
In order to receive $500 for our participation, we need at least 20 volunteers to show up.
If you don’t have any way to get to the location just email us at millerbots@gmail.com, and we will help find you a ride.

Quick Update

Wow ! It has been just crazy around Washburn, with the pep fest and AP , Ib tests and projects.

Just wanted to update everyone about our competition.

We ended ranking 24th with a 5-2-1 win loss tie. We are so proud of all of our members and the gracious professionalism they exhibited. We did not get picked for an alliance, so no playoffs for us.

Big thank you to all of the parents who helped carpools, claiming seats etc. We could not do this with out you.
