The Krakens are now in crunch time yet again! Our next tournament is on the 20th in Burnsville. On Monday the 14th we met up with the Ordean Devildogs and had a mini scrimmage with them. On Tuesday the 15th we met with the School Board and presented to them. We showed them our robot and what we have been up to.
The Builders and Programmers have been working together to make sure that the robot is functioning great for the competition.
The Business/Marketing team has been working to perfect the Engineering Notebook and make sure the entire team is competition ready.
The robotics team is heading to its second competition on the 20th of January in Burnsville,MN. We also have a scrimmage with Ordean robotics team coming up on the 14th of January and a presentation to our school board on the 15th of January. The robotics team also has a donation box on our Facebook. We've been working really hard on working on the robot and the robots almost ready to go. #GetKraken
Tournament number one is all wrapped up! Our first competition for the season was a great experience and we finished in 9th place which it a great place for this early in the year! We found many things we can improve for our next tournament (on January 20) like more things to hand out, what to change on our presentation, how to make the bot better, and what to change in our programing. We are all very exited for our next tournament!
Special thanks to our sponsors Culligan of Cloquet, Saturn Systems, Brownknows Design, Big Frog, Jerry Zimny, and Duluth Edison Charter Schools!
We're 2 days away from the tournament and we're really feeling the crunch time.
The Build Team is putting finishing touches on the robot and getting it ready for the programmers, but with only 1 official build member they have taken people from other teams.
The Programmers are finishing up codes so the bot is competition ready and are almost ready.
The Business/Marketing team has finished the display board (as of now) and are working on finishing the Engineering Notebook. They are working on making the presentation for at the tournament.
The CAD team has slowed down with the Build Team not needing things printed and are helping the Build Team.
Everything is going well and we are super excited for the tournament!
5 days until our first competition, and we're really feeling the pressure!
The Build Team is working on finishing the robot so the programmers can go through and make it tournament ready. We're down 3 builders so they're taking people from other teams to get things done.
The Programmers are working on the stages of autonomous so we get things done and getting ready to upload the codes to the robot. Everything seems to be coming together just fine for them.
The Business/Marketing team is working on getting the Engineering Notebook and Display Board done. They tend to throw papers and create a mess.
The CAD team finished the mini field and is now helping the Build Team finish the bot.
After a hard day of work on our schools day off we're getting closer to getting this job done. The builders are perfecting the lifter lander, the programers are completing the autonomous, and the businessers are finishing the team video and putting the final touches on the poster board.
We, the Duluth Krakens, now have a team photo!
We have 15 1/2 days until our first tournament, so we are at school on our day off so we can keep working on our robot!
Our CAD team is working on making a mini field for demonstration purposes.
The Business/Marketing team is working on the Engineering Notebook and Display Board.
The Build Team is working on the Intake and the lifter/arm.
The Programmers are working on programming a camera on the bot using Vuforia.
