Competition Season Meeting

Meeting Date Meeting Time Location Attendees
Wednesday, December 3 6- 9PM TCHS Brandywine Amal, CJ, Trevor, Brad, Justin, Josh, Akhila, Laura, Braden

Tasks Reflections
Milling Holes
  • Josh used the mill to drill the holes. At first they were .133 inches off of the target, which was really frustrating. He then went back and fixed it, creating four holes instead of the two that were supposed to be there. Josh concluded that the mill is not his best friend due to it's meticulous ways of being.
  • Brad and Akhila worked on printing out and setting up the notebook to prepare for the competition and worked on scouting sheets for each team.
  • Since it is a full competition, the scouting sheets took up a LOT of time. It was a little tedious, but it kind of fun to see the different team names and sources of creativity.
  • The pit scouting and match scouting sheets are very similar. They cover auton strategy and several other important scoring elements.
Electrical Work
  • Braden was able to almost finish hooking up all the motors.
Moving Samantha Module
  • Laura worked to move the Samantha module from one side of the robot to the other. It needed to be located closer to the NXT
  • It was tedious work, but it had to be done.
Score Some Balls
  • A long days work was rewarded by seeing the robot score its first ball. We lined up a tube and shot a bunch of balls (both sizes). It was very rewarding.
