We set two goals for today's meeting, building the mountain and beginning to download software onto the robot.
Izzie and Ava began to work on the mountain, with the assembly arriving from Andy Mark. They went to the website online, and pulled up a video of how to assemble the mountain. Following the instructions step by step, they eventually assembled the lower part of the mountain, with quite a few difficulties along the way. First, they had issues locating on of the parts, the lower mountain wall, but eventually found it hidden in the box. Later, the whole team got involved when assembling the floors with the walls had difficulties, due to a bend in the lower wall, and our lack of a rubber mallet. Eventually Vaseline was used, and with much difficulty the base was bent back, and the assembly nearly finished as the day came to an end.
While this was taking place, Rachel was working on downloading the software, and Isabella worked on beginning to organize the engineering notebook. Rachel downloading the Java version, and the Android studios, both of which took a large amount of time to download. Rachel installed almost all of the software, and got the computer ready to program in the future. As well, she downloaded the apps to each phone, and assigned each phone the role of either the Driver Station phone, or the Robot Controller phone.
