Day 5 saw some interesting discussion regarding the minibot and the manipulator following the team update #1.
We’ve had to change our plans and modify some of our original ideas! At least we know that every other team is in the same boat. Dividing up into sub groups we worked on minibot design, manipulator design and field construction.
We got metal today for a tower, and we have made great progress with cutting out the circles for the base. To draw a circle, first you draw a square!
We were sure to take time to celebrate the birthday of one of our mentors. Such dedication to be at robotics on her birthday!
Tomorrow we are all wearing our team shirts and hats for our yearbook picture. With all that purple we’re going to be noticed!
