Here it is Thursday already and I have not done even half of what I had planned for Spring Break! Oh well, I have been resting and that is probably all I need to do anyway. The past month has been a bit rough, so it is good to have some time off.
One very exciting thing has happened in the last month: The Robowranglers/Robotics team that Keegan has been on this year. They had an open house where they unveiled the 'Scorpion' robot. I was blown away! The team has 35 students, and several engineer mentors that have 6 weeks to
build a robot that plays a predetermined game. They have weight and size specs, but that is pretty much it.
They went to the Alamo Regional at the end of February, in San Antonio. I was able to watch the live webcast--I could not walk away! The Dallas Regional is at the end of March, so I am excited to see them in person!
This video shows the blue alliance making history with the first triple balance (they did it 3 times!) Our robot is #148. Watch this in full screen~
When Keegan joined this year, I was hesitant because it takes so much time; but what a great experience for him! Very proud of our students!
