It’s finally day 3, how exciting is that? So much is happening, it’s hard to keep track of it all. Our robot is doing so well, it’s amazing how far we’ve come. From day one, starting off with just a drive base to day three, it’s moving, lifting, and shooting cubes. It’s basically a miniature jenky version of this year’s robot.
Our members are still working on the robot to keep making it better. There’s a lot of trial and error that’s been put into our little robot. It pulls through usually, but sometimes there are some serious issues. For example, when it lowered its lift, it slammed down and knocked out a wheel or two. Fortunately for us, we have team members and mentors skilled to fix it up.
I know we’re proud of what we accomplished. It was a lot of hard work that caused stress, but we did it! We made a robot in three days! This required so many different elements like making sure we have enough material, members that were interested, and three days where most of us could meet to build the robot. Robot In 3 Days was an interesting challenge that we wouldn’t mind doing again in the future. It was a lot of fun!
