Back at it today! We are putting the robot back together so that our drivers can begin practicing (me...I need to practice) although we ran into a slight oopsies when we had to search through the bins of screwdrivers for the right one... It turns out Mr. Bruce took it home...No worries we eventually found a screwdriver that worked!
Guess what?!?!? We are getting closer and closer to the new semester which means only a few months before the competition! Can I get a "Woohoo"?!? The team is currently researching and discussing costs and options for getting us from New Mexico to England. Having to stay within a tight budget, we found a very good deal on airfare and accommodations! We plan on hosting a few more fundraisers to help out, but for the most part the team has purchased their tickets and are ready to embark on this adventure .
Yeah that's right, back and better than ever. Paul got down into it, as he began using his brain power to come up with the new chassis. How did he do it you might ask? With just a little bit of focusing on strength and a minimalist point of view he was able to come up with the idea. In addition he spent 4 months(realistically-two afternoons of serious hard work) to learn a new software called Fusion 360. Fourteen hours later and 1 kilo of plastic, our chassis was born.
Our expected changes
-Hard wire mounts
-forming the design
-implementing changes and working creative work around.
My name is Abigail, I'm a CNM student currently in pursuit of a biology degree. My current role in the team is to clean up/organize the lab, blog/take photos, and I'm one of the drivers for our robot.
