This week we finished the autonomous ball challenge and disassembled our claw-bot. We began the pulling challenge and began to build a new bot. We lengthened it but did not widen it. We tested it out today but our wheels have no traction so we will try to add rubber bands on the outside of the wheel Monday.

This week we accomplished the ball challenge and began to work on the autonomous ball challenge. Today we ended with most of the coding done but not 100% complete. We also finished our Solidworks of the added basket and new arm that is shaped like a Y that we built to support it better.

We began to practice for the ball challenge but the robot was really unstable. We spent today tightening everything and and creating stability by adding a support system from the base to the tower. We hope to finish the autonomous ball challenge by Friday.

Thursday we finally finished the autonomous triangle challenge. Friday we began to work on our ball challenge. Alot of the parts we wanted were already taken by 4th hour so we had to create our own design that consist of a Y shaped arm and two gears that poll the ball into the cradle.
