Today we had a chairman’s meeting to prepare for our presentation. We also made great progress on our top-secret knitting project.Scouting meetings have happened, and we’ve started working on a database.
We celebrated a double birthday today!Our robot must have done a lot of exercise and eaten a lot of healthy food! Today it lost some weight. We used rivets instead of bolts…. We cut holes in everything…Using the vacuum is important….otherwise the 4 pounds of aluminum shavings would have ended up in the chain.We nibbled a lot of lexan….…and a lot of metal…Challenges were given, and accepted….to get all the nibbling done in half an hour.
After cutting holes, we needed to debur. This led to a discussion about “deburring and purring”. Oleg was very good at this.
Our electrical box lost some weight too, and it is still attractive. We ate MEAT….on a stick! Thanks parents for keeping us fed.After dinner we cleaned up our workspace. “I used the vacuum! It sucked” -SamWe packed up our gear to get to the warehouse tonight. We’re making a nest…but we feel it will be empty without you!
Lucky for us, the cyberfalcons will be joining us so we’ll have real robots to play against….instead of a “oiseau”Speaking of birds….we had a little fun with the internet. (we’re all a bit flah-cray-cray around here!)
Some of us are wondering where you are. We miss you already.

K-Bots: we’ll be meeting at the Transformix Engineering Plant 2 Warehouse tomorrow morning at 9AM. The warehouse is located at the corner of Gardiner’s road and Cataraqui Woods. Wear warm clothes. Bring something to sit on (floors can get cold in a warehouse). Bring your homework. There will be times when it is very busy, and times when you can take a break while others work on the robot.
