The Birch Bots kicked the week off by starting their work on building the actual robot. The mechanical team in particular went above and beyond. To start off the chassis build, they carefully planned how they’d use the provided metal from the kit of parts and found that some pieces needed to be cut shorter. Once they were sure of their measurements, they cut down sections of the metal with a brand-new miter saw. They also assembled the wheels. The electrical team also made great strides with their work on the electrical board. They discussed how the electrical current would run through it to power the camera and sensors to give remote control to the team. The media team worked hard on revamping the website, fundraising and working on outreach programs. We are so proud of the whole team!
