The North Branch-Chisago Lakes Robotics Team has completed the build season and shipped the robot out on Feb. 23, in working order. The team had a very successful day participating in the Pre-Ship Competition at Eagan High School on Feb. 20.

In a display of "gracious professionalism," the main philosophy of FIRST Robotics, the team received help from other teams in working out programming bugs and some mechanical issues.

This week the team is meeting to develop and complete the marketing plan for the robot which will include buttons, creation of the mascot, business cards, generating the Bill of Materials used in creating the robot, completing the safety check list, and developing a working arm for the robot. The competition is at the University of Minnesota-Williams Arena on April 2-3. The competition is free and the team encourages everyone to attend. If you have never seen a robotics competition, you will be amazed at the skill of the robots and the intense competition. Visit Team 3038 on Facebook for more photos and videos.
