Team 2342 is in the process of constructing both the first and second robots. The first robot will soon be complete. The mechanical subteam is almost finished with the first metal attachment. They have completed the test attachment, which was made out of wood. The mechanical subteam is also working on the second robot (which will also have a metal attachment). The first dragger has been built and mounted on the first robot. The construction of the second attachment will commence today.

As with any team, one of the greatest challenges of the season lies not in creating the robot itself, but in testing the robot. The coding subteam has been testing the robot as well as the code for the robot. The code for the attachment is complete: however, the code for the robot is not yet finished. They will continue to test both the robot and the code. The wiring subteam will also be involved in the testing: if something within the control panel malfunctions, the wiring subteam will fix it.

This year, the team planned to have completed at least one robot before the build season was complete, in order to allow more time for testing. In previous years, there was much less time for the coding subteam to test the robot. Due to the large size of the team, tasks can be completed in a quicker manner.
