Robotics class has been working hard at finishing their robot. With only six weeks to design, build and test a robot, students have been staying late into the night to finish their creation.
The Robotics Competition is March 27-29 at Williams Arena on the U of M campus. The competition game this year involves picking up, passing and shooting a two foot yoga ball. This presented the students with many challenges, but they were able to work through them all and finish on time. One of the most fun problems to solve was to come up with the name of the robot… so the students decided on “Sir RC Swaggerdee III.” The programming team is still working hard to ensure a fully operational robot. They have developed code for the robot to follow a red ball and any student wearing red. They call it the “Puppy Dog” program.
