Hello Team! This week we have been working on improving the robot. We have been making more buttons and we are ready for the Division list to come out this Friday! We are looking forward to heading to Detroit on April 25th. We are hoping to be with our alliance members, Pwnage, so we can keep our legacy of Pwnavation. We have had a legacy of Pwnavation for 4 years. We are excited to go to Worlds because we have put some much time and practice into our robot.
