The Mekanikal Maniaks

Hooray!!! We won a Robot Design Award.
Today was the day of the tournament. We scored well and had fun in all three areas. Here are our scores for the robot games-First round we scored 175 points, Second round we scored 75 points, and the third round we scored 25 points. We also won a robot design award. The Mekanikal Maniaks made it to the state tournament. We are happy that we made it to the point we are at right now. This is the first time the Mekanikal Maniaks have made it to state finals. GO MEKANIKAL MANIAKS!!!

This is a picture of one of the robots that was designed

We are doing our team cheer. Go robots!
Today, we made up a cheer to support our robot team in the games.  We are also still working on using two robots, and are currently trying out a new robot with a ball caster.  The research group worked on a script for our presentation.  They are also designing the costumes.  Good job today, Mekanikal Maniaks!

The research  crew continued their work.  We decided on a name for our bandaid, the DiaAid.  This is short for Diabetic Bandaid.  Our robot builders have two similar robots - one has big wheels, and the other has smaller wheels.  We're trying to see which one is better.  We also decided on a design for our team shirt.  Thank you to Mrs. Imanaka who has been working on this.
