On Thursday, January 13, 2013, Kenny, Julia, Eva, Brent, Joshua, Andy C, Rahul, and I went to Mr. and Mrs. Haas’ house to build game pieces for this upcoming 2013 FRC season. To get to our destination to build these game pieces we had to travel to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Haas located in Santa Cruz. When we arrived we decided to begin constructing the pyramid used to hang from during the endgame of this year’s game: Ultimate Ascent. Taking turns to drill and to cut out different sized pieces of pipe we learned how to use power-tools while we made the different levels of the pyramid. By the end of the day we were able to finish assembling the pyramid's goal as well as most of the parts needed to construct the pyramid. After a long day of work, Mr. Haas let us explore his warehouse where a mini-flamethrower kept us warm while we worked in the cold warehouse. Mrs. Haas also made some delicious banana bread for our hard-work. Building, exploring, eating, and meeting new people made this experience unforgettable!
