Update #1

Today the FIRST Robotics competition challenge was revealed to teams on their broadcast, and we quickly set out to brainstorm ideas for our robot, as well as assembling the drive train. The challenge and the rules for the challenge can be found here: http://frc-manual.usfirst.org/.

We split into three teams – one team that is working on solidifying our plans for the robot and  assembling a list of needed parts, a second team team that began the programming work to run on our robot, and a third team that is putting together the electronic components needed to get the robot running. We are progressing quickly, and should have the idea finalized and the parts shipped by next Saturday, the 11th.
