The first meeting with all members, new and old, took place last week. The night started with a safety presentation and then the new members split into separate groups based on their interests. Workshops for each of the sub-teams gave a briefing on what each team is required to do. They were run by student mentors and previous years members.
The Business team went over finances, the business plan, graphic design and the ever-important task of button making. The Programming team discussed what previous knowledge the new members had in programming and started teaching C++. The Mechanical team started building a chassis and teaching more safety around power tools. Lastly, the Electric team took electrical pieces from last seasons secondary robot and are putting them onto a new board.
The Daleks are incredibly grateful for the fantastic turnout on the first meeting and are excited to see what comes this season.
