Christmas Break – Competition Robot Build

We spent all Christmas break tearing down our PushBot learning robot to build our competition robot with a bogie rocker arm suspension.  Here are some pictures of our building days.

About Austin Ford

Austin F. Team Captain / Electrical / Programming / Website & Social Media Design / Robot Design / Arm Driver My name is Austin Ford. I was born in Longmont, CO in 2001 and have lived here my entire life. I currently attend Foundations Academy where I am in 8th grade. My hobbies include skateboarding, fishing, camping, hiking and I am a complete technology consumer. Over the summer, I built my first monster gaming computer and use it to play my favorite games. I also spend a lot of time creating mods for many of the games that I play. I joined robotics club because this year’s First Tech Challenge will be using Java as its programming platform to control the robot and the driver station utilizing the Android operating system. Since I have been around computers my entire life and already know quite a bit about them, I am excited to learn about Java programming and how it will interface with our robot and how it is used to create applications on mobile phones. My future plans include pursuing the field of electrical engineering. I hope one day to attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
