Day 1 of Week 5: Day 24
Today, in the machine room, we worked mainly on making various parts for the final robot. These include mounting transmissions, building the ball thrower, and, of course, finishing building the chassis. We've also been finalizing the prototypes, making sure everything works right before we put it on the robot.
The programming team worked on creating a number of programs, including one for the launcher. They also tested a few things to make sure that the program is working right. One member of the team and a mentor also worked on building the driver's station.
