Opportunity for Fundraising Hours

There is one more great opportunity to get the rest of your fundraising hours. Just sell some Bon-Ton coupons! Here are the steps you need to follow:

1. Find a selling partner (just two per shift)
2. Find an adult to be at your shift
3. Let Mrs. Moutinho know the date and time so she can register you
4. Pick up the display box, booklets, team poster, and start up cash the day before your shift
5. Look through the booklet so you are familiar with the coupons
6. During your shift, set up our display on a table by one of the entrances and ask customers as they enter if they would like to buy a booklet for $5.00. The team keeps 100% of the funds.

This will be taking place between Feb 8th to Feb 24th (Some of these days are vacation days and weekend days). And you can sign up for any of the following shifts:

10:00 am – 12:00 pm
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Design Update

The design team is proud of itself for finishing up most of its work with a week to spare. Now we just need to print off our designs and send them to the mechanical team (which has already completed most of a chassis) and get them machined. We are still messing around with different methods of holding the ball inside of the robot, but it should not interfere with the building process. We are having a good day, except for Jacob, who drove his car off the road and also ran out of gas while he tried to get out of a ditch. And, of course, Teddy got that concussion a while back, so he’s not having a great time.

New Camera For Our Robots!

2mp-hd-security-cameraFor the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition challenge, Stronghold, team Northern Force is planning to use an imaging system. This 2 Mega-pixel IP Camera has built-in infrared illumination and can operate over a range of high resolutions and frame rates which will be helpful in optimizing bandwidth with our software interface. At some point in the feature we hope to use the camera over wifi using an access point as explained in this wireless ip camera setup guide. Northern Force’s programming team is developing image-processing algorithms that will help the drive team target boulders at the opposing Stronghold tower!
