Elise Miera (11) pays careful attention to a Northville mentor

The leaves are turning, the air is crisp, and Team 4405 is putting their gears into the grind as Saturday, November 4th marked the first official day of the PCA Varsity Robotics season. The software team took a trip to Northville High School to meet with their programming team, The Robostangs, for a fun day of tips and tricks on the robot’s coding system.

Starting at 10 a.m., Team 4405’s software team worked on learning how to navigate their new software system from the already-pro Northville team. With helpful mentors and PowerPoint presentations—along with a pleasant surprise of pizza, Team 4405 felt they had successful day of coding and feel confident with the new system.

Java (as opposed to Labview 2015) is going to be a lot more helpful and will hopefully help Team 4405 make it to the world championship. The Robostangs and their mentors agreed that this was going to be a fun year of robotics.

Gear up and get ready for the 2017-2018 PCA robotics season, as they are getting ready to take on the states, regionals, and soon the world championship which will be held in Detroit. They look forward to another great year!
