Captains Log Stardate 201411.5 as the end of the warm spell cools off to frosty mornings the enterprise Robotscool is entering the final stretch for 2014 with a revisit to the world of Robo-sumo.
What’s up in the trenches
This final 2014 term teams will re-visits Robo-Sumo and battle hardened cadets will initiate the newer cadets in the mystery of robotic autonomy. They will impart their knowledge in a demonstration of learning and lead teams to completion of the basics within 2 weeks. This will allow plenty of time for the creative juices to flow so that their robot will be as hard as a coffin nail and as cool as a cat ready for ROBOTSCOOL’s “Santa’s Sumo Sleigh.”
Where’s this going to happen?
We are at present on the case and hunting down a suitable venue in which to hold our end of year OPEN tournament. A few are on the short list but I will be beaming through our stargate to these venues over the next 2 weeks to see which can hold the enthusiasm. We are aiming for Sunday 21st December 10am to 4pm.Do you know somewhere?
