Today we met to organize and take an inventory of all of the parts. We used an organizing box with compartments for all of the materials. First we had one person (usually Adelaide, Izzie, or Rachel) read off the part's ID number, piece name, and how many there were. Ava wrote this down on a table, and also the coordinate of where the piece number was. This way, if we are looking for a particular piece, in the future, we can find the name/ ID number on the list and know the coordinates of where it is. We set it up where L(1,1) is in the bottom left corner on the lower compartment. Isabella also wrote down the ID number on a piece of tape which we stuck onto the side of the compartment where the piece was going. It ran very smoothly and we are excited to start building this Tuesday!
We also set up a TeamSnap account, so that we can coordinate amongst ourselves about times that we can meet. We are all very busy with other extracurricular activities, which means that we get a lot of awesome, smart, well-rounded people, but we are also busy a lot, and there is not a time outside of Sunday mornings that we can all meet, so we are trying to make sure everyone can meet at least twice a week, (once on Sundays and one time during the rest of the week).
This blog covers details about our outreach events and other events that are important to our team, and our season.
