Day 29

This week, we hope to make more progress on our robot challenge. We only have until Wednesday when we will start boot camping for certification. I believe that we will return to working on the robots after the break.

Day 28

This week we fixed our endofactor, tested and implemented a new hang feature and tested our robot for the next challenge. We have achieved the low hang and are continuing to get the high hang.

Day 27

Today, we learned that the next robot checkpoint will be next Tuesday. We think that we can get the full 12 points out of the hang, so that is what we will be working on today. Hopefully later in the week we can improve our arm to get more points out of the stars. We are most likely not going to get any points off of the cubes becasue of the robot design.

Testing continued

Many of my team members are rushing to complete their tests and training.  Even though I am finished, Mr. Martin will not allow us to work on our robots.  It is unfortunate because it could  benefit our grades.  Hopefully, we can get back to it soon.

Testing Day

Today, and for the next few days, robots are off limits.  In lieu, we are working on Autocad testing and training.  They are due Tuesday.  In order to compensate for our lost time on the robot, Nick and I come in during a lunch. We need to add a hook and we should be able to high hang and consequently, get an A.
