Went out to lunch
I’m really excited for this year.
An article about our Robotics team was published in the north county insert of the San Diego Union Tribune. The full article is available here.
Here are some pictures from a trip we took to UCSD.
This Saturday, someone is coming from the San Diego Union Tribune to take out picture for the newspaper and interview some members. We would like everyone to show up who can. This will be a great opportunity to publicize our team.
Walk On Water Competition
The SPHS Aquanauts took first place in creativity (blue ribbon medals for the team) today at Southwestern College. The whole team was great and worked together; Ellen made three runs during the event.
Today, October 9, 2010, we had another very productive meeting with four different projects occurring. 15 people came to today’s meeting.
Additional Parts for our UAV Project
If you haven’t already, see my previous post here.
We now have all the parts we need for the UAV. We plan to assemble the aircraft on Saturday, September 25. If all goes as planned, we will be able to finish assembling it on that day, but it will probably take a couple meetings to work out all the kinks.
This saturday, we worked on some things for MESA. Here are some pictures of us building fuel cell powered, solar charged cars.

This year, we are planning to create a UAV.
A UAV is an “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle” or Drone. It is essentially an aircraft that flies itself.
The UAV we are making is based on the Ardupilot Mega design from DIY Drones.
