Week 2: Wednesday


Today we made a decision about our mechanism to manipulate game pieces.

Programming is working hard, learning new skills, and trying out different methods of control.

We’re making sure that our electrical groups and programmers are working close together to solve problems.

We’re making progress on building our field elements as well.

This year we’re mocking up all the pieces on bristol board first, and then arranging them on the wood and tracing them. This will let us check for any errors before we cut the wood.

We had yet another fabulous meal. We are very thankful to our parent community for keeping us fed, and healthy.

Our knitters are excited to dive in and wind yarn to knit some hats.

We’ll be making hats during our free time for the next few weeks.

We were trying to determine if some of the unlabelled yarn is wool or synthetic, so we flame tested it to see if it would form an ash or a glob when burned.

Even knitting can be science!
