Blog Post 3

How we did this last week seemed to work really well, so we‘re going to be continuing it. Let’s jump right into it! Foundations: We made work towards Chairmans and Entrepreneurship awards, as well as discuss how we’ll be generating income and what changes can be made to the website without reworking the whole thing. Competitions: They made slides for an outline on what we need for different awards, and continued working with Tableu for preparation for next year.


Blog Post 2

Hello everyone, I’m going to be trying to give information from all of the sub teams, because I feel it was lacking in total information. Anyway, here’s the start of the blog improvements: Foundations: Foundations worked on figuring out what’s best for the website within the future, and did work for videos and photos. Competitions: Competitions was compiling data to make it more readable for others through Tableau, and figuring out what can be done for award qualifications.


Weekly Blog

Hello everyone! We’re going to be trying a weekly blog, where, every week, we let you know what one sub-team did that Tuesday. So, tonight is mostly a test to see if it works well, as may be the next few updates. Anyway, tonight we looked at competitons. Competitions were using different graphs to analyze who was doing best at Worlds last season, and what they were doing that went well, through the amount of power cubes that they delivered to the home base and scale.

Spirit Gear From Competitions
