“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work”- Aristotle
Tea SPORK would like to highlight one of our best partnerships this season, the #itcanwait movement. AT&T began this movement in 2010 in an effort to reduce distracted driving and save lives on the road. Thanks AT&T for bringing attention to a pressing issue, and giving all of us a platform to share our views!
Team SPORK has had a super great and busy week! We’ve had our work cut out for us after a few setbacks early in the week with incorrect parts, but we made it through and our robot is nearly complete! We are super excited to finish up tomorrow for bag and tag!
Shoutout to Maggie Wagner, our team captain! Maggie has been on Team SPORK for 4 years, and has loved her time on the team!
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”- Pele
Team SPORK wants to give a special shoutout to Structure Medical, who is one of our biggest sponsors. Structure is a manufacturing company that is creating the latest in medical implants and technology to help people in need. One of Structure’s employees has even graciously volunteered to be a mentor for our team, and has proved an invaluable asset. Thank you Structure Medical!
This was a very fun and hectic week! We have been working diligently to make the best robot we can! All of our subteams have been very busy this week.
Our programming team has been very busy coding our autonomous sequence, as well as working to configure the teleop code to our drive team’s preferences.
The awards team has been working hard on our chairman’s video. We have made good progress, but we still have a lot more to go!
The mechanical team has been assembling the first version of the robot, and is currently cutting and assembling the second version.
We have made great progress this week and hope to keep the momentum going for next week!
Hard at work on another day of build season!
This week has been very exciting and chaotic for our team. Early in the week, a representative from Lowe’s, one of our amazing sponsors, gave us a visit. We had the honor to show her around the workshop and tell her a bit about the game and our strategy this year. We appreciate the gracious donation from Lowe’s and are very proud to have them as a sponsor.
On Saturday afternoon we also received a visit from someone we love and honor so much, Julia Wagner. Mrs. Wagner is a NC FIRST representative and we are so happy we got to see her and show her what we are working on!
As we continued to progress through the week, we came upon a few bumps in the road. A few challenges arose with our chairman’s video, setting us back in our progress. But we took that frustration and turned it into motivation. We have realized that we will always run into challenges, but what matters is that we push through those tough times to make us stronger as a team and a family.
