2015 Summer Activities

During the summer we will meet on Monday nights at the Bot Shop at 6:30pm for training.  All team members, but especially rookies, are encouraged to attend as many of the sessions as you can.  After the training we may have a BRIEF business meeting and then we’ll have a fun activity such as Frisbee or softball. (Schedule below is subject to change. Watch Sunday evening email/text for details.)
Optional, but highly encouraged, Ben will be leading coding workshops on Mondays at 5:30pm. So come early if you are interested in learning about programming the robot.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm we’ll be meeting at the shop to work on the robot for our summer competitions. This will include both mechanical and CAD work. A great way to get early hands on experience at the shop.
First two weeks after September kickoff we will do machine and shop “certifications” for anyone who will be machining parts.  All team members must have attended the summer session or have an overview during the first two weeks after kickoff.
