It is at this point that we will have the opportunity to keep 45 lbs of parts to continue working, in the meantime our first competition in Montreal, held the 20-21-22 March 2014 !

Further to our last evening of demonstration, the media were writing articles about us, whose The reflection of the Lake and The press.

Our fifth week of construction ends and we finally have a beautiful functional robot !

As expected, the evening's demonstration took place yesterday, the 5 February 2014 at our usual local. Au rendez-vous: many of our generous sponsors and our fabulous parents. Planning: Large discussions throughout the evening, presentation of the team, the competition FIRST and demonstration of our robot.

Despite this very pleasant evening, which allowed us to catch our breath a little before the last week of “rush”.. It is time to return to work because we still have much to do to put the eyes once in Montreal !

Time passes so fast !

P.s. A more comprehensive summary will soon be online with, Maybe, a video of our robot !

The fourth week draws to a close and we take advantage of these minutes of respites to inform you of our advanced !

Indeed, the well advance team crawler encounters more and more to complete as soon as possible, to be able to refined. But the main topic of this fourth week remains our evening of demonstration taking place next week. Fifty people invited will come to learn more about our project which hold us dear !

Hello everyone,

The end of the third week arrives at big step so that our ideas began to realize. Indeed, the basis of our robot is now built and operational. Our prototypes are also almost all loans and we note their advantages/disadvantages.

We receive our material and hope to receive soon all our sponsors during a small launch party. More info to come !

This is what made our little weekly article.

Thanks again for all your support !

P.s. Some pictures will make their appearances during the week in the section «»Gallery».


Now that the first week is over, We have a little clearer ideas !

The entire team meets more often, week as weekend, morning as evening. Without revealing our strategy, Please be aware that we now have a more specific plan in our head and on paper. The basis of our robot was built and our demo-lego is in full construction.

After many debates, We have therefore chosen the primary functions that the robot must absolutely complete as well as those that the robot will be able to do in bonus if we have time. Our teams end therefore to investigate the various possibilities to show us which will be most feasible.

So we meet again in a week for an update, surprise bonus, We expect put you a few more images from here there.

Thank you all for your support !
