The Mohawk Minute Issue #4


As always, we’re hard at work here at RoboRiot. “Busy” is basically our middle name by now, but “RoboBusyRiot” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Bad joke? Yeah, bad joke.

Anyway, here’s what we’ve been up to for the past week: the programmers have been hard at work with our triangle bot. They’ve been able to program the robot to move with more agility than ever before. They’ve even managed to get vision-tracking the little guy, which is incredible. Triangle bot can now track a yellow ball as it rolls across the ground. CAD’s been working on designing and modeling the chassis for our competition robot, and they’re getting the metal cut out and ready for assembly. Members of the fabrication team have been assembling a chassis for a robot with a swerve drive on it. Not only that, but they’ve also been crafting plans and models for the climber on our robot and are well on their way. The business team has been keeping track of each team member’s hours for the season. Also, a few members of the team – the newly designated “Button Bosses” – have been making new buttons for our iconic hats and a suit for our very own RoboRiot Mascot.

Not only will we be having a new mascot suit, but we’ll also be rolling out an online RoboRiot Merch store pretty soon! Students will be bringing home order forms for new RoboRiot merchandise, which parents, students, and friends of RoboRiot can all order and wear! So make sure to keep an eye out for that later on.

See you next week, RoboReaders! …Bad joke? Yeah, bad joke.
