RoboSub 2019 - Day 4

The morning team should have consisted of Jon, Juan, Gab, Nicholas, Moira, James, and Andreea. Sadly, Juan and Nicholas missed the van that left at 6:00 am sharp. The vehicle was already gone by the time Juan rushed out, and Nicholas wasn't even aware of the fact that he was a part of the morning […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 2

Yesterday morning, one of the ethernet wires in our recently soldered tether snapped, which meant the Electrical Team needed to re-splice the cable.  The rest of us had it a little easier. We had no food items whatsoever, so it was time to go grocery shopping. We drove to Target and stood there all googly-eyed like […]

RoboSub 2019 - Day 1

We were all due to get to the airport at 4:30 am. Maybe Suzana and I would have made in on time if we didn’t get dropped off at the wrong gate (thanks Mom and Dad!). Eventually, the two of us met up with the rest of the team and we made it past domestic […]

Robosub 2018 Days 2,3, & 4: Auri Awakens - The Road To Semifinals

By Jon Machinski The road to semifinals was not as easy as we had hoped. We did start off day 2 right, I woke up at 5:45 am and got to the daily draw a little late, but still got us a 12 noon start time. This was alright since we could use the setup […]

Robosub 2018 Day 1: Building Auri

By Susana Trac Monday was the day the Mechanical team arrived at competition, which conveniently coincided with the day our shipping crate finally showed up at the hotel. The first thing I did when I arrived in San Diego was provided false information. Classic. Since the arrival time of my flight was half an hour […]

July 27, 2017 - Day 4: Is This Turning Into a Pattern?

The alarm that is Jon blared loud throughout the rooms, waking all of us up. From under my pillow, I peaked at the clock. In red block numbers it showed 6:30. Wow, that's early. But I guess we have our static judging today at 8:50, so we have to be prepared! For breakfast, it was […]
