Robot Testing and YouTube Channel

The team has been hard at work with the competition only a few days away. Here’s a video from some of our circuit testing.

We’ve set up a YouTube channel where we plan to upload videos from our testing as well as any other relevant videos of the team and the robot. Watch for more videos to be uploaded once we get some time after the competition!
