Today we got some major progress done as we finally achieved picking up a cap and stacking it. It is not 100% perfect but we are still fixing some small tweaks, one of them being the wheels so that our robot is able to make turns better and not be so janky. Fiona and I will work on designing, building, and placing the ball scooper on our robot really soon.

Mykel, Fiona and I worked on soldering some wires for our robot. She also worked on SolidWorks. Melqui is still working on practicing for his SolidWorks certification since he is taking it next week. Mykel is planning on taking the robot home to fix some things on it and also add the claw.

Nicolle and I are working on fixing the major issues on our robot because we got the rubric for our midterm. We're also adding our ball collector and ball shooter today. So far our robot looks really good and it's very sturdy and it's coming together really well.

Mykel and I are adding our end effector to our robot in order to be able to flip the caps. Fiona is still on the process of reassembling the robot of SolidWorks since our chasy is different from that of the last model. Melqui is still working on SolidWorks.

Melqui is still working on SolidWorks for his certification which is in about 3 weeks. Mykel and I worked on adding the arms to our new and improved robot. Fiona worked on SolidWorks since we restarted our robot and she has to rebuild the entire robot from scratch.

Fiona worked on SolidWorks while Mykel and I worked on our robot. Melqui is still practicing for his SolidWorks certification which is somewhere around December. We hope to add the ball shooter and scooper by next class...

Mykel made some other small changes on the robot and changed the way the wheels were placed to make them roll a little bit smoother and make the robot travel a little smoother so it's not as "janky."We hope to complete the challenge by the end of this week.

Today we worked more on the arm for our robot making adjustments along the way. Fiona is changing our Solidworks robot to go along with the real one since we made those adjustments. We are thinking of changing are chassis to fit in with the 18 inch by 18 inch rule.

Fiona worked on putting together the SolidWorks model together since we made some adjustments to our robot, we basically rebuilt it. We're slowly working our way on putting the new and improved arms on the robot which means we are closer and closer to completing the challenge.

Mykel came up with a new design for the arms which we agreed that might actually work compared to the last design we had. Fiona's working on soldering (also teaching some people in our class to solder☺) and Melqui is practicing SolidWorks for his certification. Since Melqui's busy, a new addition to our team was made, Monique is now on our team. We plan on moving some other stuff around our robot so we can place the thing responsible for picking up the balls and transferring them to the shooter.

Mykel and Melqui took apart little parts of our robot so we could fix it. Fiona was working on fixing up some motors so we could use them on our robot, and just everyone in the class could use them. The improvements we're making on our robot are mostly in the arms (to be able to pick up the caps) and in the spacing of its components.
