The end of build season happened approximately 15 minutes before this post, at 9:00 pm on Tuesday, February 21st, 2017. We bagged and tagged the robot and the next time we will see it will be at the Reveal Ceremony on Friday, February 24th, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
This year is not all about the robot, however. The team is still working hard to finish the pit this year so that it even more magnificent than last year’s. The entire team has been hard at work on it off and on since November.
Yet another aspect of this year is the costuming. In previous years, the students and mentors have just worn the team uniform, but this year, we have created steampunk costumes for each of the students, as well as some of the mentors, though several of the more introverted members of Team 3238 were not super pleased with this, so much so that some of them even said “Bah…Humbug!” when they found out.
Our first competition is coming up on Thursday, March 2nd through Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at West Valley High School in Spokane, WA. Wish us luck, and Kamen bless us, everyone!
