Week 10 (April 3,2017)

We got the arm to work with them help of Yoni. I brought the straws but forgot the tape so we have to construct the tetrahedron another day. But for now we are just going to play around with it and get used to the movement.

Week 9 (March 31,2017)

We are starting the process of programming the claw to function properly. We need to bring 18 straws to help construct the tetrahedron. We've compiled the files to start the robot movement manually, but we don't know how to move the arm. we are out of time so we will figure out next week.

Week 9 (March 27, 2017)

Today Brandon and I almost put the final touches to our claw bot. Mr.Martin gave us a couple of tips to help the stability of our robots arm. We are almost done hopefully we get to programming the movement of the claw.

Week 8 (March 24, 2017)

Brandon and I began to build the claw for or robot. We need to program the robot to pick up the tetrahedron and place it on the goal. We are starting to gather parts for the claw. Next week hopefully we get far quick.

Week 8 (March 20, 2017)

Brandon and I finally made a good program. With the help of Darien our robot somehow manage to go around two chairs 7 times autonomously. Our next step is to make a claw bot. its going to be hard.

Week 7 (March 13, 2017)

Today Brandon and I have finally gotten the basics of programming down. We are programming our robot to do a full circle around two chairs. One problem we keep running in to is that one of the bearings on our robot keeps falling off. Hopefully by the end of the week we can figure it out

Week 6 (March 10, 2017)

Today was a great week, we finally got our robot up and running. There was a slight problem within the programming that hindered our progress, but with the help of another group we got it moving. Our next task is to get it moving around chairs in a figure 8 motion.
