STEMpunk earns Engineering Inspiration Award

STEMpunk will be competing on a global level in Detroit this April. After an impressive showing at a regional competition in Duluth, Minnesota, our team was recognized with the Engineering Inspiration Award, which celebrates a team's outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team's school and community.

Our robot started out hot with a 5-game winning streak that helped us rank in the top 4 out of 58 teams during the first day. Then after taking a few losses, we slipped a little lower in the rankings. When it came time for the top seeded teams to pick their alliances for the elimination bracket, STEMpunk was selected as the 7th pick overall. When matched up against a powerhouse alliance in the quarter finals, our alliance fought valiantly but did not advance to the next round. The alliance we fell to later went on to compete in the final round and placed second overall in the regional.

STEMpunk qualified for the world championship due to both the impact its program has on our own students and to our efforts in our community. We has been active in our community raising awareness about STEM education opportunities, and for the last three years have run the Robot Faire at the Two Rivers Community House, which celebrates STEM and engages children with interactive STEM activities. We also have partnered with the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, teaching physics and design concepts to students through their annual summer ROV camps.

Build Season Update

We had an incredibly productive meeting Saturday! With the CAD model and part drawings completed for the drive base and lift mechanism we manufactured the parts to build two robots (our competition bot and one for practice). Implementing LEAN manufacturing processes. all (3) milling machines were running along with two drill presses and a couple saws. The most important part was accurate marking and quality checking the parts. Now onto assembly.
