We finally got to build today!
We met from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm and decided to begin to build the basic Push bot robot. Adelaide, Rachel, and Isabella were at the meeting. None of us had ever built something like that before, so it was a learning experience for all of us. For example, we spent a long time trying to get the axle hub to fit in. First, the screw that holds the axle in place was in the wrong way, and then we put the axle hub in the wrong way. However, we learned from that and now remember what we have to do next time. We also discovered that sometimes the instructions in the booklet are not very specific, and some of the details are off. It allowed us to be able to learn in a hands-on way to experiment a little bit and to learn more about the pieces and what they do.
All in all, we ended up building somewhere around 1/4 of the robot.
