    The battlebots have been awesome. The students have just completed the first build of the bots. The learned a lot about the different components and ow much it actually takes to get anything to work well together, as a system. That system thinking is one of the big takeaways I wanted my students to have. Understanding that each system has to work together in harmony and requires many different types of engineering is important. As of now, they are working through the reverse engineering portion of the assignment. They have to now come up with an improvement that is unique for their bot, design it on our 3D designing software, 3D print it out, and then equip their improvement. After all groups have completed this, we will start our battlebot tournament. Our maintenance at the school create a battlebots arena for the tournament to take place in (and practice runs take place in it as well!).
