Robotics and Engineering Club
OUR FINAL MEETING WILL BE JUNE 1st as has been announced in Robotics Club multiple times. We will be battling the bots on that day.
Our March goal will be to continue the final assembly of the cars and begin to make a list of the things that need to be changed on the prototype.
In April we will tentatively begin pairing up the bots and seeing which ones can stay in the ring and which ones need more engineering.
In May we will have bot races, doing any finishing or detail work on the bots and possibly go on a field trip as a group.
June will be dedicated to reviewing what we learned and clean up.
