From outreaches to shop days to networking events and beyond, there is never a dull day on our team!
Today is Friday and I am so happy! I cannot wait to spend the whole weekend with my team! Today was such a great day! A lot of girls were in the shop working on a bunch of different things. Some girls spent the afternoon driving Brother around and practicing with him. He has a new nickname. Some people have started to call him Brobot. How funny!
The programmers noticed that Brother was having a bit of an issue with drifting, but they were able to fix it. Then, they worked on my code! Yay!
Even though I only have four motors ready to go right now, the girls are working on wiring up the next motor controllers so that when I do have more motors ready they will be easy to set up. They are carefully connecting the wires and organizing them so nicely.
The main focus of today was the ball intake. It looks like the slapping mechanism might not be the one I use. The girls are working on making a new one that uses double-sided tape. I don't really know much about it yet, but I am excited to see what they come up with. They also extended the little ball scoop that I have. It will cradle the boulder when I go over obstacles.
It seems like I never am the same robot I was the previous day. I am growing and changing bit by bit. Who knows what I will be like at competitions?
