Week 5

Starting the beginning of our fifth week of the 2020 season, our team opened up our new robot lab to the community and sponsors to come and view. We presented our past robot and awards while also showing where we are now in terms of prototyping and CAD designs. As the CAD team is working hard to finalize details for assembly, the machining team has gotten busy with fabricating all of our specialty parts for both our practice bot and competition bot.  Some examples our of special parts are tons o

Week 3/Week 4

During weeks three and four of the 2020 season our team has been focused on finalizing the CAD of the robot. Using Autodesk Fusion 360 we have worked on all aspects of our robot finalizing the power cell launcher and the chassis. We have begun to create drawing enabling the machining group to start making frame rails for our practice bot. During this type our programmers have been refining the program for our mecanum drive.

Week 2

One of the main tasks of this week was to have a fully functioning and programmed mecanum wheel drive. In order to do this our programmers bench marked source codes from FIRST libraries and then made their own program using control loops. The mechanism took three days of tuning to become up to our quality standards. At the same time, the mechanical group has been prototyping the power cell launcher, changing variables such as arc length, material, angle, and motor speed. As of Saturday our tests

Week 1 -> Design

During Week One, our team worked on design concepts. We all shot out ideas, and by the end of the first night, we had a basic idea of how we plan to build our robot. Our CAD team has already started to work together to design prototypes. They are also starting on the chassis CAD and power cell extake design.  We are set on the idea of having a low bot and trying to have a lighter robot from previous years. As an experienced team, we have the ability to play every aspect of the game, we

NASA Women

It was on August 26th, 1920 that the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified, giving some American women full voting rights. August 26th is now Women’s Equality Day. Designated in 1973, the date celebrates the Women’s Suffrage Movement and underscores the continuing work for equality for women and girls. NASA has marked this persistent effort with a video introduction to eleven space pioneers, including physicist Pearl Young, engineer Kitty O’Brien Joyner, mathematici

Become a Sponsor

Without the dedication of our Sponsors providing the opportunity for students to gain real life skills, Davison Robotics wouldn't exist.  The students utilize fundraisers to help offset costs but fundraisers alone wouldn't be sufficient since the average yearly expenses are around $75,000. The DRBC (Davison Robotics Booster Club) provides students the opportunity to engage in FIRST Robotic Programs at all ages. We offer programs starting at 1st grade through 12th grade with the dedicat
