We learned quite a few things over the year:

  • How to build a basic squarebot
  • The difference between torque and speed.
  • How to manage time when you have a deadline
  • How to build robots in solidworks
  • How to adapt to new challenges, including a smaller team
  • How to work with others
We were able to all enjoy a competition between several different teams with all different ideas and concepts for their robots.
