As we enter into our third week of the 2019 Build Season we have started building our mechanisms and initiated our pneumatics system. All sub-teams are busy, some preparing presentations and a business plan and others working on coding and then the mechanical team working on the various mechanisms.
The Irrational Engineers are busy finishing up the chassis and drivetrain with pneumatic wheels and then starting the building of the mechanisms for the top of the robot. We are learning to use tools and to design the extendable arm. The Presentation Team is busy prepping for the annual Maryland Space Business Roundtable (MSBR) grant request presentation. They are learning about oral presentation techniques and learning their parts.
The Irrational Engineers is a FIRST FRC robotics team dedicated to teaching highschool students about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics while still having Fun.
