Life Lessons with B.O.B.

Today’s lesson: laughter is one of the most effective cures for all ails

Robotics isn’t always perfect, there has been a lot of late nights spent building, long sessions programming, and a lot of lost sleep. Even though we’re feeling pressure over the upcoming deadlines, we always make time to smile and laugh. Every dinner is a ruckus and entertaining event, our break before we begin again. Despite the struggles, we are still making leaps and bounds with our robot! Programming has begun designing the code for our autonomous mode, and they’re making great progress. Design is almost finished sending out the blueprints, with just one or two left to go. Build and Mechatronics scrambling to collect all of the parts and get the robot built so they can give it to the programmers, and Business Development has ordered all apparel and is beginning to prepare the team for competitions. Team 85 is a great team, and no matter how hard things get sometimes, we always work through it together.

Stay tuned for more updates on our bi-weekly or more likely whenever we remember, blog,
