MOE has been hard at work since kickoff and accomplished a lot in the first half of build season! We are on our way to creating a great robot by the tag date!
Mechanical team working together on the first task of build season: field replicas. Pictured-giant scale.
Prototype very efficient with handling power cubes but has a tendency to giggle.
Mentor Joe Perotto teaches the mechanical team lab safety, a priority to all MOE members. Safety FIRST!
