Today we worked really hard, because there were lots of jobs to do!We cheeseholed lots of metal……then we deburred and filed everything so nobody gets cut.We greased up some gears……then we reassembled the gears, with the help from a video.The case was cheeseholed too, so we had to tape it up so nothing will get in.Some of us started to work on our electrical box.While others did some physics.
For a while it was getting pretty loud in the back of our room!Out in the hallway we continued to work on bumper painting.Painting is exhausting work!We were happy to share our workspace today with the Cyberfalcons FIRST team 3710 who brought a really cool piece of metal to show us!
It is so exciting for us to get our hands on the tools and start to make all the little pieces come together. It will be a very busy week. We may work later on Tuesday to assemble some major pieces of our robot.
