Week of Feb. 6

One, Super Bowl was fun, eh?  I'm writing this before the Super Bowl, but I know it will be fun because I like the Patriots AND the Falcons (used to live in Boston).  No lose game for me!

Two, things need to get completed, your grades for the week:

1A - Ball picker upper needs to be a working prototype.  We should have your "ramp" in by Wednesday.  Let's also have a 3D model of it before we build it.  Don't worry about nuts and bolts, worry about where the motor will be placed, etc.

2A - You have the "bucket" and "climber".  The bucket should be built, and ready to insert.  We need to design some plastic foot attachments to hold the bucket, have a cross beam to hold the "gear plopper", and make sure it fits!  The "climber" needs to be a working prototype as well.  This is the device that makes our robot worthy of playoffs.

We have another team working on code, and the gear plopper.

Do we need hours Friday, when school is closed?  Also, be sure to sign up for alerts via our Remind.  Go to the team site:  first.lanierhs.org to sign up.
