With the competition being so close we chose to send two teams, one team consisting of four people and the other consisting of three. Today we will decide the two robots that we are sending with those groups. People are racing against the clock to get all their robot built and programmed. After the robots are chosen they will decide if they are taking the robot, table, and supplies home. But for now we are staying later than our average time, instead of staying till 5 we will stay till 7. So we have two extra hours to work and prepare for the upcoming competition.

Today we have a total of 9 people. Previously we had talked about the practice competition, sadly we did do do very well but all we can say is we were not the best, but we were not the worst. Our goal for today is to improve our robots to the best of our ability so that we can compete in the actual Robotics competition in Friday April 8th from 4:00 to 9:00. Down below you can see how we are working to improve our robots for the competition. We are also doing a video and picture activity with retro toys (look below for images).

With the competition only 5 weeks away our teams our racing to design, build, and program their robots. So far everyone is on the programming part, and everyone is using trial and error. Our practice tables are set and we are testing and tweaking our robots to do their best. During the warm up competition our team placed 10th out of 12 groups. Also, our video committee is hard at work with our "Brixterz Robotics Team Video and Picture". We are using an 80's theme. The competition is nearing, it's on Friday, April 8th, from 4:00-9:00 at University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy. We hope to do our best and win this competition so we can move on to the next stage.
