Hi there, today is the day we have all been prepping for, the Albany tournament. Everyone is very excited and ready for the tournament to begin. The tournament hasn't sarted yet so the G team is practicing driving and the C team is working on placing their robot it the right spot. I will have pictures and updates after every match hopefully!
Tonight the G and C teams decided to meet before we leave for the tournament tomorrow. The G team is working on their skyrise intake and just tweaking little things like the wiring. The C team was working on their intakes for the skyrise and the cubes.
Emotional Status: Everyone is very excited and worried for the tournament on Sunday. Just some small disagreements about the intake but everyone has been very calm.
Today both teams met and have been working hard on their robots. With the arrival of basketball season most of the C team and none of the G team are gone. The G team is working on their wiring and designing a skyrise intake. The C team is working on ways to improve their elevator lift and figuring out a simple way to use counter weight.
Emotional Status: Everyone is feeling very excited about the upcoming tournament this weekend. We will be posting updates of the tournament on here for Saturday and hopefully a few videos.
Today the C Team decided to meet and work on their elevator lift. Some changes will be made to the mini push bot as well but today they will mostly be focusing on the main robot. There are only three team members here today and working seems to be going as planned.
Emotional Status: Everyone is feeling very tired today as their school week ends and the long three day weekend begins. It seems to be a very quiet day but everyone is very content with their work.
Today the G and C Team met and have been making minor changes to the robots. The G Team is making some minor changes to their robot but they will hopefully be able to start driving today! The C Team is working on some different style intakes and on bracing the robot better.
Emotional Status: Everyones spirits have been very high and everyone is very excited for the tournament in a week and a half.
Today the C Team decided to meet for the third time this week. They have all put a lot of dedication into this new robot and hopefully it will pay off. Today will be mostly a build day to try and finish the robot and next week will be more of a programming week.
Emotional status: Today everyone is very relaxed and there has been minimal arguing. This whole week has been a very successful week since not many arguments have aroused.
Today everyone met after school and started getting to work right away. The G Team is working on improving their lift and transferring their scissor lift to the new chassis. The G Team is also working on some of the wiring on their robot. The C Team is working on making the new robot work. They decided to go with the elevator lift and a little push bot. There is still some problems with the elevator lift but it is improving.
Emotional Status: The G Team is feeling good today and are working very efficiently. The C Team is also working very well and the last few days seem to be very relaxed. There have been hardly any conflicts so hopefully practices will resume like this.
Today the C team had decided to meet more often during the week. The robot has been having troubles and they decided that they were gonna try some different ideas. The C Team has also decided to build a new robot, the extra time is very needed and hopefully stuff will start to get done. The G Team is sticking with the scissor lift design and they have been trying different intakes to see what works best.
Emotional Status: Everyone is feeling very relaxed today and the mood seems very mellow.
