Climbing to the Finish (Week 6)

By February 18, 20172017 News

Time flies when you’re in build season! With Bag-and-Tag looming just around the corner, our engineers are taking advantage of the three day weekend as they test how much physical and mental work they can endure. Excitement and stress are in the air as our engineers prepare, plan, and execute on our final tasks. On the other hand, the business team has been racing against award submission deadlines, from Chairmans to the Entrepreneurship Award. The more award submissions completed, the business team gradually begins to turn their attention to competition season as we improve our pit’s poster designs and work on storefront training.

From Saturday to Monday, members from both our Engineering and Business team are heading down to Pacific Science Center to participate in Engineer IT! Weekend. Here, we are representing Unified Robotics as we showcase the different robots to the public. This is a great opportunity for our Storefront members, as the event goes hand-in-hand with the Communication Workshop our teammates attended at the Pacific Science Center.

The Pacific Science Center Public Supervisor, Cat Scharon, talked to us about how to identify your audience and engage them. The lessons we learned from this workshop can be applied to Engineer IT! And also our FRC competitions.

With just 3 days until Bag-and-Tag, and 12 days until our first competition meet, the CyberKnights are giving their last spurt of effort as we climb to the finish.
