Tasks Reflections
Mount the light sensor
  • Trevor and Eric mounted the light sensor on the robot for the goal grabber's auto-detection. The Light sensor was mounted where the battery was on an angle at the corner of our goal angled piece so that when the goal is angled right in the robot, the pistons will go down and lock to the goal so that we have control of the goal during auton and tele-op.
Making the rear roof
  • Josh and Justin made the rear roof for the robot in order to make sure wiffle balls didn't go into the robot. this will help us avoid going over the 5 ball limit. they made this by first cutting a piece of plastic to 20 1/4x 2 1/4. them Andrew helped them bend the roof 4 times to help it fit within the confounds of the robot.
  • Brad and Eric worked on finishing the entry for the FLL Qualifier that the team had volunteered at, adding pictures and jobs that people did. They then worked on starting a robotics card game, starting an outline and drawing out some of the basic cards.


  • CJ and Laura worked on the autonomous program for driving off the ramp and grabbing a 60 centimeter goal then scoring with our two balls given during autonomous then placing it in the parking zone. This in total will be 60 points allowing us to score more in a match.
