The most important things that happen today had nothing to do with the design of the robot, for now. First of all we ordered our new CRIOs and unlike teams that ordered theirs when they came out a couple of months ago, ours will ship on Wednesday and should be here sometime next week. The second thing was alluded to in the title of the post, we used our FIRST choice credits! The ordering page was a little aggravating, but in the end we used all 100 of our credits and should have a good assortment of parts arriving from AndyMark.
As for the robot the students spent the meeting discussing ideas and seemed to move in a circle. It might be a waste of time to continue to go in a circle for the robot design but with the first update coming out tomorrow, I didn't want to start major cading before the update.
Not much else to report except that the Athens Drive students took Marvin to their open house. From their report everyone was impressed, including the principles, and we picked up three more students to move the total to 21.
