During the month of November, some of our team members worked really hard to change the lyrics of a popular song into a parody of robotics. The students brainstormed multiple songs from different decades and finally settled for Emergency by Icona Pop.
I strongly suggest watching the video at least twice: first, to see the awesome dance moves of Jordan, Austin, and Devon; then to read the lyrics below the video. Enjoy Control Alt Delete by Team 1553/208.
In the beginning of the Robotics meeting the adults called for all the high school students to come into the room so we could have a discussion. We discussed the upcoming FRC competition that is on the 24th. Then we got volunteers to be the drivers and coaches of the big robot. Then when we figured out who those people may be they went into the practice field to start practicing with the robot. After the general discussion there were people who were working on making the field for the small robots. Then there was a small group of people that were working on building small robots. There was also a group of people that was installing software to be able to use it to program the robot. The people who were practicing for the competition were stacking totes upon each other then put the trash cans on it within three minutes. They also learned where the on/off switch was and learned about air compression. The Parody team members were working on the lyrics for the song Emergency by Icona Pop. While they were working on the lyrics they listened to the song over and over again. Finally, the Marketing team members were making posters.
The FTC Team members are practicing with last year’s robot. They are also getting to know the feel of moving around the robot with the joysticks.
The FRC Team members are practicing with the robot on the field that they prepared to practice on in order to get ready for the upcoming competition.
The 3D Modeling team members are using the 3D printer and modeling software.
The Parody Team members are looking up songs. We also got pictures of all the students and of the mentors.
