Week 2: Saturday


We had a very productive day today, working on all aspects of our robot design. This year we are working much more in parallel than any other year, which allows everyone to learn lots of skills in one area, and become a bit of an expert.

Lots of mechanical designs were discussed. We were drawing schematics and doing math for the manipulator and the chassis.

We’re mapping out where our pieces can be cut so we waste very little wood.
