In the first semester of my sophomore year, I joined the Trinity Robot Study Team. This team turns out to be an invigorating group of people. I further chose to join the Firefight Robot division to build a robot that will be attending the Firefighting Home Contest held at Trinity next year.
Every member in the group had little experience with building robots. We started from scratch. We did a lot of research about all the necessary parts of our robot and ordered the components online. We came up with multiple designs for the robot and did experiments to decide on which would be the best one.
Now we have made the base and are still working on the extinguisher part of the robot.
Through working as a team, I learned not only the knowledge about robotics but also the way of cooperating with partners to achieve our common goal.
