This is the Engineering and Event Blog that is maintained by the team. After each meeting one or more of the team members writes up what we did and what they enjoyed obout the meetings.

Today's Meeting (11/6/09)

Today we looked at our revised presentation lines and then Faith and I worked on programming. Soon Alan got home after his flying in from Australia. After that every one wanted his feedback on arms, robots, and programming. Soon he got to everyone and worked with Faith and I on line follow my blocks.

We practiced our presentation several times and changed it around so that it is easier to understand. We worked more on programming until it was time to leave.

Monday Meeting

Today we started with table runs and programing.  Faith and Andrew worked on a few programs, while Aydan and I worked on an arm/attachment.  We started with strengthing the base, and changing attachment points on the top.  After lunch, we did the presentation a few times, and did teamwork and presentation judging.

Scrimmage

We went to a scrimmage, kind of a mock table-run competition. Eight other teams attended and, sadly, we got second to last. To us this  was a call to being more productive. It was a fun event and we worked on programming the whole time. (later, we found aproblem which was making the robot inacccurate!) Theis was a fun event, and I thank all who helped at it or set it up.

Today's Meeting (10/30/09)

Today we worked on tons of stuff. Al and Aydan changed the robot another time, so we, the programmers, had to change our programs yet again! But this strategy is very good now. Karl taught Faith and I smooth line following, which wasn't as complicated as we had expected, yet worked very well.

We also ran through the presentation several times, practiced our lines, and started timing it.  I thought that it was a very productive meeting.

Monday's meeting

This monday, we really kicked it up a notch.  The programmers did a good job on continuing their programs, and the builders worked quite a bit on the arms etc.  I worked on the bridge mission with Owen, and we got the arm and most of the program done by the end of the meeting.

Meeting on Monday 10-26-09

At the begining of our meeting everyone on the team worked as a programmer. This was very effective and it helped us to get a lot of missions completed in a relatively short amount of time. I worked on programming a simple mission that goes into action ofter the dynomometer. It was fun! I also worked on a mission to pick up loops, which was more challenging.

A great meeting!

Lego Guards at Weimar Scrimmage

The team didn't have very many runs prepared for the scrimmage, but we did OK, especially considering that we have had our current robot for about one week now. Our highest score was only 125! That isn't very good, but we will work on it. However, it was a good learning experience, and it was really great to meet the other teams and see what they were working on. Our team also practiced being GP.

mondays meeting

This monday we worked on getting a couple more missions done for the scrimmage and on the the project  we got the scrip typed up and are just cleanig it up a bit. 

jig

today I made a a jig that piks up all of the lops in a spining fahon

Our meeting on Monday, 10/19/09

Our meeting started off with the table. I adjusted the program for Mission 1, so it works perfectly. Andrew and I also got really far on a mission which will  pick up the loops while line-following. It is going great! After lunch we had a Round Table, then moved on to the Project Presntation. We did a run-through, then adjusted the script and did it again. The website design and binder organization went well too.

This was a very productive meeting and I am looking forward to our Friday Meeting, and the Weimar Scrimmage!
