Thanks to some forward thinking by our mentors (sometimes hard to come by, hah), we had stocked up on all the lumber we needed in the weeks preceding kickoff/build season. It also helped that FIRST kindly provided a shopping list of stuff to get. Phew!
Majority of the time on day 2 was spent on measuring, cutting and assembling field elements. We’ve definitely gotten a lot quicker at measuring and cutting out the different pieces (the addition of a wicked table saw helped too).
By the end of the day, we had the rocket and one of the side pods fully assembled. More to come soon!
