Design Team:

Our Design Team worked hard for two weeks to draw up a precise model of our robot using Solid Works. 


Electrical Team: 

Our Electrical Team waited patiently for the Design and Mechanical teams to build the robot before they could wire it.  But in the mean time they did programming and made a excellent autonomous mode.



Build Team:

Our Build Team moved quickly once they received the Solid Works design to manufacture a stunning robot, that is light weight yet extremely sturdy.
