SWE Day with First Robotics - February 10th

Post date: Jan 13, 2018 8:37:02 PM

When: February 10th from 1-3pm

Where: Powertrain Control Solutions, Ashland VA

The Richmond-SWE Section will be visiting the Deep Run High School's First Robotics Team to see the robot that they are building. We will be providing feedback on electrical design, coding, mechanical design, etc. It is also a great opportunity for the students to have female engineering mentors and role models and to see engineering professionals in action.

The students have 6 weeks to design and build their competition robot before bagging it. They will continue working on their secondary duplicate robot. This year the theme of the competition is 8 bit video games! The manual for the competition can be found in the attached file below.
