The team has continued to work very hard on the robot. So far, we have completed the base, the coding, and the wiring. We are continuing to work on the intake, storage, and shooting, the control panel wheel, and the hanging mechanism.

Here is a tour of the field for the competition from the First website!
Our next event before competition is the STEM fest on February 22 at Southeastern Community College. At this event, there will be several different booths where different groups will be presenting different STEM activities. We will be showing our robot at this event. If you would like to find more information, you can go to se.iowastem.org. We will later go to competition in April!
