Happy Holidays, and best wishes for the new year from the LigerBots.
As of Friday December 19th 2014 LigerBots, Team 2877 is sponsored by Google.
Hello All! Apologies for the absence of posts last week.
We started off Monday's meeting with a name game. Max ran the meeting: we collected money from Candy Box sales, and discussed our upcoming fundraiser at Yogurt Beach (see the handy-dandy flyer at the bottom of the post for more info). If you can volunteer to present the robot between 5pm and 10pm this thursday, email Ben Gross at <email@example.com>. After that we took a photo for the South yearbook and split into groups.
Outreach: Created a basic promotional flyer to be used for many LigerBots events. Created a basic template for this year's business plan
Chassis: Started cutting the bottom plates out of plywood so it will clear the brackets.
Battery Box: Finished up/corrected problems in the CAD. Established need for half-inch plywood instead of three-quarters. Decided how to mount wheels. Worked on structural supports.
Programming: Worked on downloading code onto the Robot.
***Remember: No Meeting on Thursday! Go to Yogurt Beach instead!***
The Ligerbots is having a fundraiser this Thursday at the Yogurt Beach store in Newtonville.
Come to Yogurt Beach, 665 Watertown St., on Thursday and mention the Ligerbots, and the team will receive 30% of your purchase price.
Last year's robot will be on hand for demos from 5-10 PM.
Please come out and support STEM education in Newton and have some great yogurt.
On Wednesday October 29, from 7-9 PM, Newton's combined high school FIRST Robotics Team, the Ligerbots, will hold a meeting for parents in the Newton North High School Film lecture hall (the room is located to the left of the Tiger Drive entrance of Newton North right under the staircase). At the meeting, students and coaches on the team will present what the team is, how the team functions, and how the year will progress. We especially invite parents of new team members, as well as parents who think their children might be interested in robotics, business, and design; parents of returning students are also encouraged to attend, meet the coaches, and learn more about our plans for the upcoming year.
