After six long weeks, Team 4639 has completed our robot for teh 2019 season, Destination: Deep Space. There has been so much time and effort put forth, and we couldn't be any more proud of our students for completeing the robot. Even though our robot is bagged and tagged, there is still a lot of work to be done! Starting very soon, our drive team will begin practicing with our practice robot, preparing for the Channelview and Del Rio District events in March. Our robot is considered a first for our team. Unlike any robot before, we have built an elevator with an attached intake system for the balls and hatches, and for our first elevator, we believe that it's turned out quite nice. With a vertical pivot for our intake, our robot has several moving parts and is quite agile when it moves on the field! We can not wait to compete and see all the other teams at our events! Here it is, our 2019 robot, please give a warm welcome to Prosperity!
It wasn't that long ago that the FRC Kickoff was shown all around the world to many anxious students, and now the build season is nearing its end. Our team has been working much more lately in order to meet deadlines for our robot. As our pieces are nearing preparation, we are assembling our robots for programmers and soon practice. This year, we have went with some new ideas as well, which are keeping us very occupied. We are finally setting the final look and design for our robot, with the electrical system coming together fairly quickly. For much of it, it is definitely crunch time, with tasks being done much quicker than before so that we can make any last minute adjustments so that we may have time to fix any problems, big or small. We have multiple components of our robot created and ready to go such as our drive train and intake system, and we can't wait to see them in action on the final robot. It's starting to come down to the wire now, but we are getting ready for bag day!
Ever since the beginning of the school year our vex team has been preparing for their new season. Now, they have been competing at multiple competition and have seen a great amount of success. Our team were finalists at the Cypress Ridge, Battle in the Boonies and Cinco Ranch New year Powwow competitions, where they were one of the most sought after teams in the entire line-up! They also recieved "The Tournament Champion Award" at the Longhorn Engineering VEX Tournament, and more recently won the final championship and skills challenge at their competition in Cy Fair. Both of our VEX teams are also qualified for the statewide competition, where they will compete for even bigger awards! Good luck and congratulation to oue VEX RoboSpartans who continue to work hard each and every week! WE can't wait to see just how far you all will go!
In other news, our build season for our FRC robot is starting to enter the second half. With all of our parts already or currently being produced, we are preparing to assemble our practice robot. Once that is done, we will move on to the creation of our final competition robot! It has been an exciting season so far, but there is still alot of time left before the season ends!
