The team was hard at work after Kickoff planning for this season's Chairman's Essay. The team began to develop ideas for the Chairman's theme, video, and essay. The team started drafting subsections, and a draft was developed for the essay. Team members completed their FIRST® Equity Diversity, and Inclusivity training certifications. Team pictures and individual pictures were taken. Graphics for pit banners are underway, and the business plan is also coming along. The Safety Notebook is being revamped, and the Engineering Notebook is being updated daily for the upcoming season.
The team split up into groups to brainstorm ideas, and then presented them to the rest of the team. The programmers have completed downloading the software required for this season. Prototype ideas for the intake were created in CAD, as the team began to research what will work for the current season by researching other season's robot designs. Members began to CAD different options for the robot and decisions were made in regards to which design will be the most effective.
