Bluefin Brainstorming 2016

A special THANK YOU to Bluefin Robotics for once again graciously hosting a mentor/engineering brainstorming and strategy session at their great facility right down the street in Quincy. We say “Team HYPER wouldn’t be possible without the help/support of [insert sponsors/students/teachers/alumni/parents here]” a lot, but with Bluefin, it really is true. Bluefin Robotics’ sponsorship of our team makes all our efforts possible.

It is always helpful to get a chance to sit down as a group of professionals/mentors and really dig into the nuances of this year’s game, building upon all the hard brainstorming work our students have been doing this first week of the build season. The additional minds and expert perspectives help us inform our decisions for building a great robot together. We can’t wait to bring back your ideas and feedback (and hopefully more of you!) to the robotics area and magically turn it all into a functioning robot.
