Our competition is exactly one week from today. We met to finish up all of the little details that need to get done for next weekend. Focusing especially on our robot, we measured the size of our robot and cut out cardboard cutouts, to make sure we got the correct size when we ordered Plexiglas. Also in a way of improving the robot, we added extra grabbers to our arm in order to be ab,e to push the button on the robot to push the button on the rescue beacon.
We also finalized our presentation as well, and made sure that we covered everything that we wanted the judges to know about us. We talked about the outreach we had been doing recently, working with the teams at our middle school, and teaching them all about FLL and the futures they could have in engineering. We also talked about ourselves and our past, as well as our robots and strategy. We went through the checklist of robotics and decided on things we needed to improve on, like adding a reachable emergency switch.
This blog covers details about our outreach events and other events that are important to our team, and our season.
