Hello All!

Week Six culminated in the Millerbots traveling to Eagan High School for a mock competition to take the robot for a spin, test this year’s scouting system, and get a feel for the game. After playing two rounds we left a few hours early with a robot communication issue and a basket of safety regulations to comply with, thinking that our precious time would be better spent solving some problems back at Washburn.

With bag-and-tag three days away every hour counts, so the Millerbots are under some serious pressure. We’ll be posting progress reports on Monday and before we pack up on Tuesday so you can check out what we’ve done and what’s left to do.
