Last night Isabella got the Plexiglas ordered. This means today we were able to drill holes in the Plexiglas and get them on the robot. Ava and Izzie worked on drilling the holes in the Plexiglas, and Adelaide and Isabella worked on printing out logos and numbers to attach to the robot. While drilling the holes we had some difficulties holding the nuts and bolts at the angles required to secure them, but with practice and teamwork it was no problem for us. While we were printing out the logos, we also had problems getting the numerals to be the correct size for our robot to be ready to compete.
Rachel worked on trouble shooting involving the programming. For example, the programs were not downloading onto the phone, which was quite a problem, for us. We looked on the forums for a while to try and solve the differences, and eventually we discovered that this was because we had two different apps on the two different phones. While this took a long amount of time, it helped Rachel to gain comfort with the Java, as well as how the phone system works.
