RBAR (the robot now has a name) made it’s first public appearance at this week’s Pep Rally at the Dripping Springs Middle School and received a warm welcome.

We will be having a work session this Sunday from 2 – 5 for all team members at our usual Sunday location (please send an email to lmmarsan@gmail.com for directions).  

Lots of progress has been made on the test platform for RBAR, but there’s still quite a bit left to do.  The Build/Design/Test team plans to continue to work on the claw and practice driving.  The Strategy/Controls team will continue to refine the program for the joystick and website development.  The Marketing team plans to work on the panels used for the display booth and finish the overall design.

Please be on the look out for an order form for this year’s team t-shirt.  We have a very short window for which to process orders.

The team is still accepting local sponsorships.  All sponsors will be listed at the team’s exhibit during competition. The competition is here in Dripping Springs this year so it’s a great way to get your company recognized.  Please contact Mr. Norman for more information (dana.norman@dsisd.txed.net).
