The WiredCats (FRC team #2415) competed at the Peachtree Regional today. Well, today was practice matches and inspection day — we did both! I’m impressed with our autonomous routine that can now almost always score two balls in the 10 second period. Meanwhile, I’m unimpressed at the inconsistency of our shooting, which I chalk up to the thick rubber tubing that provides the catapult with its oomph.

I was out of the classroom all day with the robotics team, though the arena is only about 5 miles from school so I can still return tomorrow for classes. My students, meanwhile, started a lab that asks them to analyze a traffic accident scene using what they know about forces and friction. More on this lab tomorrow.

Also, we recorded this message for our school:
