Wednesday the 15th and Monday the 13th

Monday the 13th:
First things first. Rehearsing the 8 FLL Core Values was the first step in our meeting. We then shared our research findings with the rest of the team. Next, we worked on attaching a color sensor to the bottom of the robot. Next step was programming 2 missions: Changing conditions/Multiplier lever and Apprenticeship/Search Engine lever. There is a heated competition to finish a certain mission first, then the 'winning 'team'' will get to program driving to the Sports mission.

Wednesday the15th:
We first discussed the Project section and any ideas that were to be had then. We fixed a problem with our current color sensor alignment: the cord that connected the sensor to the brick wouldn't fit in the tight space.

week after scrimmage

On Saturday, October 4, we went to the Maker Fair to do a scrimmage to test our robot with other people. We started the day by getting there early and setting up our table so that we could work on our robots attachments and programs.we tied for 5th. We saw so many different types of attachments that did so many different things.

ON Monday for our team work  exercise  we did written pats on the back.
And we worked on the ball mission we almost had it.

Today we are working on the multiplier and the search engine.
