Students will learn and work on using CAD software to implement design ideas into robot mechanisms and make drawings so that the Mechanical and manufacturing subteam can make parts.


This subteam will be responsible for learning about the electronic components of the robot and be responsible for wiring the electronics panel. This subteam will also be responsible for sensors and need to work closely with the mechanical and programing subteams.

Mechanical and Manufacturing

Students involved in the mechanical subteam will be trained on the router, mill, laser cutters, and 3D printers and will be taught how to assemble those parts and put them on the robot.
