FIRST Robotics Power Up – Week 1 Update

And we’re off! Team 1296 – The Full Metal Jackets 2018 build season has begun. In our 1st week, we started off with talking about design, by asking our team to design robots that would complete the challenge most efficiently and effectively. Through our designs, we set a base of an 8-wheel drive and began prototyping a climber, intake, and double reverse 4 bar. Our CAD team is hard at work designing our drivetrain. Non-robotic construction has started building our practice field, starting with the switch, for the 2018 season.  After a successful season in 2017, Team 1296 – The Full Metal Jackets are eagerly going into this season with ambition and optimism of an even better season.

Check out a quick video of our week 1!
