On a personal note, I am extremely proud of what the team this year has put together. As a community team we are entirely self-funded and draw students from a variety of public, private and home schools. Mentors, parents and students banded together to raise funds, form partnerships, develop our brand, and construct not one but two robots as a sophomore team. Even some of the most complex aspects - such as the shooter feedback system and even this reveal video - was entirely put together by the students with mentor help.
