The time has come! FIRST Robotics Competition has released the teaser! All of us are anxious to know what this means. Everyone is checking the conspiracy stories and trying to figure out what our 2018 game will be.
We had our first meeting of the semester this Thursday! It was a short meeting for reviewing general team information and expectations for this coming FRC season. Since we have transitioned from club to team for the new semester, we got to have a small icebreaker to get to know the other members better.
Everyone got up bright and early to FRC kick off at TI. Together with other teams around North Texas, we watched the live stream presentation of the new 2018 competition and walked around the field to get a look at the dimensions. After getting a feeling of the field we returned to the school for game break down and rewatched the game animation. Separating into small groups of five, a lot of ideas were created and expanded upon later. We are looking forward to a challenging and exciting new season!

Build season is underway! Everyone split into their respective teams to get working immediately. We said farewell to Corsair, last year's robot, as electrical team dismantled it. Meanwhile, mechanical team worked on brainstorming the details of their designs and software team learned the basics of coding. Two drive trains are being constructed in order to begin coding and driver practice as soon as possible. Prototype construction was started as well. It's been a busy and productive first week!
