Our day today was split between several tasks. One major accomplishment was cheeseholing some of our pieces. We measured……then made a template for our bear paws……we punched to mark the center of each circle….…and then started to drill.We lined up the holes pretty well this year…..it is a precision operation!There are lots of cheese holes to make, so we all took turns.While not cheeseholing we occupied our time updating the media binder with our recent news coverage.We drilled access holes to the valves for our wheels……and we displayed our Kare-bots in the main hallway at school.CAD drawings got completed……we weighed our metal…17 pounds!…and we took a trip to buy bumper material.To burn off steam we took a break to practice throwing.We’ll have human player tryouts after we have a bit more practice time.The Tweedles showed us how to throw with great distance and accuracy. Programming work is coming along too. “We’re declaring Friends”-Mr. Wood
We have had a few phone calls recently from the Cyberfalcons. They left some robot pieces here when they visited last. Luckily we were able to tell separate their pieces from ours. Cyberfalcons: your material is here when you need it.
In case you’re wondering what’s up with our duo…they’re still friends too.
