Week 2: A Growing Idea

Week 2 (January 12th – 18th): The team worked really hard this week to produce an effective CAD model of our lift and grabber. We saw some bumps in the road, but we have managed to create a design we are happy with, and we are ready to begin prototyping. We have begun working hard on the electronics side of the team by starting to assemble the electronics board, and they have begun testing out the pneumatic systems, which are a new addition to our robot this year.  We have begun to look deeper into our 2018 robot to learn from mistakes we made last year and are noting how we can improve on these mistakes to ensure our 2019 robot is our best robot yet. A big thank you to Dunwoody Urgent Care for sponsoring us this week. With their support, we can get more material to further better our robot.
