    • The survey and its results are now available. You can find the survey here. The results of the survey can be found here.

    • Results were very divided between the options of building one 120lb robot, one 12/15lb robot, or many 12/15lb robots. Because a majority choose some version of building a smaller robot that will probably be the path we take. However further discussion and voting will be necessary before a final decision is reached.  An online survey will be created shortly for those that could not make it to the meeting but would like to contribute.

    • We held our first meeting and it was a great success. A total of 20 members attended. The presentation was led with a power point. The sport, events, past projects, and possible directions the team could go were proposed. A survey was passed out to get input from the group. Results of the survey will be posted shortly.
