Today is Wednesday November 16th and I would like for all schools that are enrolled in the Southworks Engineering and Robotics Olympics to check in and comment on this post so that you can be registered on this Blog. If you would like for me to pose any questions to the group please email me and I will start a separate post about the topic you send me in an effort to get feedback from the group.
Also, please note that there has been a change in the dimensions of the container that the robot has to fit in!! It is larger and I have purchased the containers so that you can see if your prototype can fit so that everyone will be on the same page. I plan to drop off ALL containers before thanksgiving break so let me know your availability!!
