Electrical is responsible for designing the robot's electrical board and wiring it. Sub-team members devise creative solutions to electrical-based goals using safe and efficient wiring techniques. Electrical work requires foundational knowledge of engineering concepts and applications, and members must cooperate to ensure that all components function properly in order to bring the robot to life.
Marketing & Outreach
Marketing & Outreach is responsible for the team's public presence and financial backing. Members design T-shirts and a pit for the robot each year. Additionally, they advertise the team through social media and various events, and they also work on writing award documentation. Marketing & Outreach is also in charge of scouting at competitions which allows us to know other robot's strengths and weaknesses through data collection, analytics, and team strategy during competition.
Mechanical is in charge of building the robot and recreating field elements for practice. The sub-team assembles the mechanisms, chassis, sensors, motors, and other parts for the robot. Mechanical utilizes Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and other resources from the community for help with the construction process. Members learn how to safely use a variety of machines and tools in the workshop.
Programming is responsible for coding the robot and learning how to use sensors effectively. The sub-team is responsible for securing the robot's smooth operation and realizing the team's vision for interacting with the robot via a controller for competitions. Members also works on coding the autonomous part of the robot's operation. Members in programming learn Java and how to apply it to real-world machines.
