Unfortunately, while cutting a zip-tie, one of our team members cut his finger accidently with a pair of scissors. Luckily, some of our team members came to the rescue with some Peppa Pig band-aids. Our new team motto is “Safety FIRST - Robot Second”.
One third of our team went to the Homestead, PA for an outreach event with the Steel City LUG. We had 300 visitors come visit our booth at the Waterfront for the Kids’ Club Summer Celebration event. We brought several MINDSTORMS models include a printer, a swing, a game and a RoboArt machine. We collaborated with Sharon Tiger Techs FIRST LEGO League team as well.
We changed the format of our robot using the frame-opening kit, in which the front of the robot is in the shape of a C. We started making bumbers for our robot. We are still learning and some of the corners are better than the others. We are practicing using generic cloth instead of the official canvas cloth and hope to master bumper-making by the end of the year. We also began to update the CAD for the robot. We also replaced one of the bearings on the our robot that we had broken on the first day. It was a very productive team meeting.
