This week we accomplished the impossible. We finally completed the fifth challenge!! We are so happy that it is done before spring break and can now relax a bit. We also completed our robot build on solid works. Thanks to Richie's skills we completed it relatively easy. Now that we've picked up the pace a bit we can focus on the hardest challenge of them all. KEEP IT LIT!!!

This week our objective is to finish the fifth robot challenge. This is to pick up the ball autonomously and drop in the tube cylinder. We have to program the arm to lift to the perfect height to drop the ball inside. It has been quite a challenge so far. The battery is proving to be a big part in the challenge. If the battery is too full the arm will go too far back and if it isn't charged enough it will not raise high enough. Hopefully by the end of the week we have it figured out. KEEP IT LIT!!!

This week our goal is to finish Solidworks as well as finish the fourth challenge. In this challenge we have to get our robot to autonomously put the tetrahedron on to the goal. We are almost done but we have to make sure the robot travels three tiles before it goes on the goal as well as angle the arm directly over it. Richie is working on Solidworks but he is having some difficulty finding some parts. Hopefully we get all of this done by the end of the quarter. REAL DEAL SAUCY WITH IT!!!

Since we finished the challenge this week we are on to he next one. Amani is trying to figure out how to successfully program the robot and the arm to autonomously work. This is kind of tricky but nothing is to hard for THE REAL DEAL. While he is doing that we are still working on solid works. It might seem to be easy but it can be difficult at times. Hopefully we pull through this one quickly. WE LIT!!!
