2/6/16-Slow but Steady

  Today Dawgma members continued their hard work. From nine to five, our robotics team slaved away to make our robot go from being a baby, to being a toddler robot. Members were scattered, fighting against the clock as week 4 comes to an end. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a team to build a robot. MechEs continued doing a variety of tasks- building field elements, ironing out arm details, working on gear boxes. Awards and scouting team continued going over all their work with a fine tooth comb. Since Chairman’s award has been submitted, the team can finally continue working on other pressing matters: scouting sheets and the Entrepreneurship Award. The programming team was also hard at work: coding autonomous mode along with practicing with IMG_8165.JPGthe robot’s accelerometer and gyro. The CAD team continued their valiant struggle against their deadly foe: the CAD’ing program, Inventor. CADers fought against the program heroically, dealing with the constant crashing at the most inopportune moments and creating annoying situations for the CADers to fix.
