Day 32: Week 5 Design Recap

Photon 8515

We haven’t talked about our sibling team much this year. 8515 Photon is our development team primarily constructed by students new to our program this year, mostly 9th and 10th graders. In previous years 8515 built an Everybot but we found the students weren’t learning to design and build in the same systems we use on the 3847 robots. This year we have decided to work on a custom design that shares a similar drive train and intake to 3847 but has a different superstructure. 8515 is building a similar archetype to several open alliance teams such as 2582 and 3467. 8515 will be competing at Katy and Houston district events this season.
