We sure are busy bulahs today! We've finished our X-Carve, and are now cutting designs on it. We are working on our finalized drive train and frame. Our fundraising team is hard at work participating in contests and reaching out to new sponsors. Our uniform shirts are in, and everyone can have one; anyone can purchase them at shop.spreadshirt.com/bulahbots. Bumpers are a challenge, but we have three rookies stepping up and conquering the task. We are moving quickly, and are excited to see our hard work pay off.
This week has been quite productive for all aspects of the BulahBots! team. We have finished our mock up of our drive train and gear delivery, and we are finalizing our climb mechanism. We are excited to see the benefits of the cooperation among these three focal elements. Our design team is finishing overall plans for our robot to ensure we will be able to excel at our desired aspects of competition.

This year's game is released!
This year we are going to 'Take Flight' by stocking our ship with enough fuel and climbing aboard. (The video is below). We are very excited about our team and feel that we are strong in every aspect of the team. From programming, to build, to image, we've got great leadership and look forward to a great season. If you are interested in helping us we are still short of our fundraising goal. You can help better prepare the business people and engineers of the future.

Yep you guessed it, the BulahBots are joining FIRST Tech Challenge for the 2014/ 2015 season. We are expanding our team to incorporate the different levels of FIRST including the middle school's FLL team and NOW the high school's FTC team. We have started to test the new gadgets that we will be using to build our robot. We are extremely excited about what we will be able to accomplish this season!
Hanging out at the highland road observatory for the International Astronomy Day. The BULAHBOTS were able to share their love of science to children in the area by playing catch and showing them what the robot does.
