Robot in the bag

Wow did it come down to the wire. At about 9:00pm on Tuesday, with the deadline to seal the robot in its bag only 3 hours away, we powered it up. And it works! Our intrepid driver, Dan, spent the rest of the evening learning to maneuver the robot. It didn’t take long for him to get the hang of scooping up the ball and depositing it in the goal. Whether or not that is enough practice to perform well in competitions, with other opponent robots trying to block him and balls bouncing unpredictably from other alliance bots, remains to be seen. But after lots of long hours and hard work, it’s great to have a working robot. It’s been sometimes frustrating, sometimes grueling, but ultimately fun and rewarding time building our robot. Way to go Team Bravebots!
