our past outreach events, we have joined ECG Robotics Events as well as our
chosen outreach events at several middle schools. This year, we are planning to
attend more middle schools and display our outreach robot. We are also creating
a website that displays the different robot elements of FIRST so that
elementary-age kids can learn more about robotics.
CAD department of Team 10195 is in charge of designing the robot on a program
called Parametric Creo 3.0. This program allows us to build a model of our
robot digitally which saves us time compared to using paper and pencil to draft
our ideas and troubleshoot. When there are defects in our robot, it can be a
nuisance to look at a sketch on a piece of paper which may not be kept safely.
Another huge advantage of using CAD is because our world is getting more
computerized, it is important to incorporate as much technology as we can into
our robot. Using CAD can also help us during competitions because teams which
use CAD can show the judges the familiarity that we have with our robot and how
show the dedication we how the dedication we had into building the robot.
year (2017-18), our marketing members are focused on creating our flyers and
banner to be displayed at competitions. We are working on combining the
hands-on aspect of Robotics into creative and eye-catching displays. We are
also working on creating a mascot for our team.
engineers and builders of our team focus on creating our robot and making sure
that it works successfully for our competitions.
