There were six teams of four students and each of the four students had one of these focuses: media relations, software, control/electronics, and mechanics. The students whose focus is media relations documented the process of creating their teams’ robot and put their work out on the internet. The students who choose to focus on software programmed their DSTR robot using Texas Instruments’ language Energia. Those students who worked on control/electronics were responsible for the internal communication within the robot between the controller and the motors. The students who choose to focus on mechanics will be building the frame for their robot. All four students will work together for four and a half days to create a well oiled and efficient DSTR robot.

The communications teams wrote daily updates detailing the entire process of their robots’ creation. Those, along with their logos, are below. Note: many do not include the fourth day because that was the day every team member came together to fix any problems their robot had and prepare for the race the next day. Also, the fifth day was not included since the students did not have time to write during their Race of Champions.
