Everybot Project

Several of our newer team members are working on building a version of the Everybot  The Everybot is the model for teams with limited resources to design an effective robot. Every year there are teams that follow the Everybot documentation that have very successful seasons. Spectrum is building an Everybot so we can have a robot to practice with and we will also release any updates that we make to our version. 
The kit drive base construction got under way this week.
