What we accomplished
This week Mr. Martin told us that for our mid-term we would need to come up with a visual explanation of our robot challenge, either by video or by power point. We chose to do ours with a power point, and this week we started our power point. Also this week, we finished both arms and started programming them to work.
What we plan to accomplish this week
we finished one of the two arms and we plan to attach the other arm and put them both on our robot and hopefully we can have them programmed by the end of the week.

This is our first arm completed that is used to throw the beachball
Goals for the week:
Our goals for this week are to finish building the arms of our robot, Our robot is designed to have two functioning arms and since there is on two day this week, our goal is to finish one arm today and the other arm tomorrow.
This is one of the arms in the works
And hey look! It's Tequilla!! Haven't seen her in a while!
We had to change our robot challenge, just one last time. We are going back to our original idea, which was robot basketball, but we have decided to make the game ball a beach ball. So the concept of the game is basketball that will be played with a beach ball.
On another note... We got a care package!! Mr. Martin gave every group what we like to call a "care package". It was a box that has a list of brand new parts that we are allowed to use for our robot. Including a new brain, new motors, and a brand new controller.
There was a problem with our new motor's wiring but with the help of a fellow classmate the problem was taken care of.
We came up with a new robot game. The game is similar to the arcade game; Skii ball.
A robot is to collect a ball, and launch it through hoops and the more difficult hoops equate to more points that a team can earn. However, unlike normal skii ball the hoops wont be on a flat surface, they will be stacked vertically in a pyramid. Each team will have 90 seconds to score as many points as possible. Each time the robot shoots a ball it has to be at least 3 feet away from the hoops.
This is us dismantling our previous assembled robot.
