Team Collaborator


 We have been lucky to have a collaborator for our FTC team this year.  Justin Leach is a 6th grader at Jesup Community Schools.  He is a Tenderfoot Scout with Troop 95.  He is also interested in football and can't wait to be an official member of FTC next year.

 Let's Not Forget Our Star, "Jeff!"






Jeff is a great robot!  He has a chassis built out of Tetrix.  He runs on DC motors powered by a Tetrix battery and controlled by an NXT block.  We can communicate wirelessly with Jeff by using a connection with a module named Samantha.  This allows us to operate our robot. We are able to score points in two different ways.  The first way is to use our claw mechanism, which is powered by two servo motors.  The claw picks up blocks and can deposit them into a basket, which earns us points.  The second way our robot can earn points is by raising a flag which is placed in the corner of the playing field.
