Reflections For This Meeting: 

Normally we wouldn't make an entry for a presentation, but since we had some work to do we did it anyway! 

 After the presentation at the Lions Club in Meadow Vista, we briefly met  and decided that Alejandro would be our speaker since he was the only one that was able to take the time to work on practicing it this week.  We're confident that he'll do a good job!

We finished attaching the plastic to the sides, and got a great start on the driving robot.

Although we did a lot on the regular robot, most of the time was spent building a new small bot for the FTC diving challenge that we're helping run at the Sacramento FRC Regional.

Breaking out of the room would have been more fun!

Today our entire team had to get up very early to make it to the morning show on CW31 in Sacramento. We were in the studio for 3 hours - the first segment, we talked about FIRST and FIRST Tech Challenge - talked about our challenge for the year and upcoming World Championship. We gave a robot demonstration - and also talked about some of our team missions - like getting legislators involved in FIRST.
The second 2 hours - we were involved in a MacGyver challenge. The studio locked us into a room with an assortment of everyday items and we had to make something useful out of them. Read more »

Lots to do, not enough time...

Today we have a bunch of little projects to achieve, but all of them are important. Coach started us out with figuring out what our priorities were, and we wrote them onto the white board and designated which team member should work on which project. Then, we  commensed to get to work. We have a good team that each can work on their own or together and I am confidant we will achieve much today. Read more »
