Week 15: Friday (12/9)

We are now done with the robotics so its time for some seriousness. We all began doing our gmetrix depending on what certification you are taking, either solidworks, Autocad, or Inventor. We all began studying and working hard to make sure we all get certified.

Week 15: Monday (12/5)

We were getting ready for the challenge tomorrow by tweaking our robot however we can and taking our free time to practice. We also double checked our code to make sure that our robot will run without problems. We also found a way to push the cube under the wall instead of just the stars.

Week 14: Friday (12/2)

To finish off the week, we tried a couple of attempts of the challenge. We have a new strategy of trying to push the square down the fence and earn some extra points but we are stuck on how to do this efficiently. We are trying to perfect this as best as possible without having any problems.

Week 14: Monday (11/28)

To start off the week, our arm kept falling because it was too heavy to be controlled by the motors so we added more rubber bands so i can efficiently go up and down without falling. We are about to prepare for the autonomous challenge. We are predicting to get one or two over in this time, but if we run out of time we will decide as group to skip autonomous. and focus on manual.

First off i wanna start by saying happy thanksgiving to everyone and i hope they have a great weekend. We are all on break having a good time and enjoying time with family and eating amazing food. Our only job was too research a little on extra ideas on how to make the robot better and more efficient.

Week 13: Monday (11/21)

To start off the week, we took the prongs off the endefactor. We coded the motor and changed it to a square type of shape. We made it easier to push the stars off and push them under the fence. We found out a secret technique for this challenge that nobody is doing and works amazing this push effector can push up to 6 stars underneath at once!!
