Shoreline cleanup and demo prep.


Now that we have our robot back, it’s time to get it working again.

We’re testing pneumatics, checking the wheels, and reprogramming a few things so it won’t be moving at competition speeds for our demo tomorrow.

After our meeting today we walked to the shore to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up. It was a bit rainy, but K-Bots are not phased by a little rain.

We cleaned up the shore near the marine museum. We collected many different things, but the most interesting finds were: fireworks, super glue, many “doggie bags” and a broken lawn chair!

We also found a CyberFalcon!

In total we collected a full bag of garbage! It feels great to do something positive for our community.
