Today Isabella and Rachel met at 6:00 pm to build the robot. We built the right and left chassis today.
When we started building the left chassis, we had trouble understanding which direction the channels and wheels would go, because the pictures in the instructions were zoomed in and taken from certain angles that didn't show the full perspective. We learned to look ahead several pictures so that we can see the pieces from multiple angles.
Another thing that we had problems with is knowing whether or not to put bushings and spacers in. It was sometimes difficult to tell, but we ended up learning a lot from this because we now know how to build something without necessarily needing exact pictures.
We, by the end of the meeting, finished a large amount of the robot individually.
We are super excited for the kickoff!
