Team Updates
  • FIRST 3512 Spartatroniks

Week 3 of build season has just come to an end, bringing us to the halfway point in our build season. The team is making excellent progress on the robot. We continue to improve our proto bot, and we have made some progress on our competition bot. We have even built a mock elevator! Meanwhile, our team members are working hard in order to fund this season. You can find Spartatroniks members selling barbecue tickets for an upcoming fundraiser. They are also visiting businesses to try to get sponsors and involve our community with our team. Additionally, we will be participating in a few community events in the future.

We are happy with our progress thus far, and are looking forward to the second half of the build season!

Week 2 of build season has just come to an end, and our team is heading into week three strong! We recently completed our proto-bot and have already begun working on our competition robot. Additionally, our team members got together to nominate a mentor for the Woodie Flowers Award. This award is given to the mentor who has the most "effective communication in the art and science of engineering and design." The team selected our mentor, Mr. Scott Rowe. Mr. Rowe stepped up as robot coach after our previous coach stepped down. He is great at communicating with the students and working with them. He is an invaluable asset to our team. We would like to thank Mr. Rowe for his hard work during his past four years with our team. We anticipate a great third week of build season.

As the first week of build season comes to an end, 3512 is very optimistic about the upcoming season. Our team put their heads together to come up with an out of this world robot design! Our robot features an elevator with a hatch/cargo intake attached to it. 3512 is already working on our proto-bot, and we hope to get started on the competition bot soon! Our CAD team has been working on sketches and drafts in order for us to test our ideas and to prepare for building. The Finance Team has been busy writing grants, discussing budget, and getting our team organized, among other tasks. The Outreach Team continues to improve our website, update social media, create the chairman's video, and organize the rally. Our mechanical team is creating a frame for our robot and finishing up a proto-bot. The electrical team is working on our robots electrical boards for the proto and comp bot. Meanwhile, the software team is working on programming for our robots and testing. We are excited to begin the second week of our build season!
