Only three meetings left, including today, until our first qualifier!
Benno's been adjusting the robot's arm--putting strings and a length of surgical tubing on it so that our gears don't have to work as hard. He still needs to make the motor-powered spool to wind the strings back up again, but that should be a fairly simple thing to do. JD's been helping to engineer the arm, as well as fixing up the engineering and team notebooks. Jane's been writing a bunch of pseudocode for the autonomous portion of the match and keeping up with Instagram. I might be the gunner this year, which means I need to get plenty of drive practice in.
As a team, we need to practice our judges' presentation--we've worked out who's going to talk about what, but it's only a rough draft so far at best. Also, everybody needs to write their bios in the team notebook, but we can't do that until JD sets the right pages up and puts our pictures in there.
We are the Droids, and we'll be keeping you updated on our progress.
