Another busy day for the Marauderbots!
The programming team has finally been able to start running code with the robot. While doing this, the build team is fixing problems as they arise. Their hard work is starting to come together!
Our business team has fully updated the Business Plan.
The business and media teams worked to finish some smaller things like sponsor shoutouts and updating the website.
The team is getting more excited and more stressed as bag day is coming closer. Our first event is only four weeks away! There is still a lot to do, but the Marauderbots are a group of hard working and dedicated students. Anything can be done in this team!
