Robot to the Knee (Team 5452)

Engineering Notebook

Section 1 About the Team

Robot to the Knee is a team that stems from HP Robotics and is in its 4rd year. Our
members have a variety of interests and backgrounds but we are all dedicated to working hard,
learning how to be good engineers, and making horrible, horrible puns. Everyone brings
something new to the team and we all of us work hard and have fun. RES-Q is perhaps the
most difficult game that any of us have faced so far, but we enjoy putting our minds to the test of
solving it. We would like to thank our coach, Mr. Weiland, for being so dedicated to running HP
Robotics, our mentors, among them Mrs. Lowery, Mr. Sanpitak, Mr. Snmez, and Mr. Treschl
for all their hard work.
