Today we had a day off from school which allowed us to have a large amount of time to meet and work on the robot, since the competition is getting closer and closer. Rachel began working on programing the robot controllers (RACHEL ADD SOMETHING HERE) and while that had a few difficulties it began working better and better before the day was over. We also worked on each of our bios in the engineering notebook, as well as writing a little bit about our team. We also decided on the three people on the team that are the best at driving the robot (Ava, Adelaide, and Izzie) and worked on "challenges" for them to improve their driving skills. Again today, the robot did not work for a small amount of time, but began working again 30 minutes later. This is becoming a recurring problem and is a concern for us. Isabella and Adelaide worked on mounting a metal piece on the front of the robot to act as a pusher, preventing the debris on the field from getting under the robot, and allowing us to be able to push it out of the way. We ended the meeting by taking a look at the robotic board for FLL, which will allow us to participate in outreach as more informed mentors.
This blog covers details about our outreach events and other events that are important to our team, and our season.
