Day 23: The Robototes Return

Today the team finally returned from a much longer than expected weekend.

The drivebase subteam continued to work on the electronics board, which is quickly becoming infamous for being an important but sadly slow task.

Although the electronics board was the main thing that the team intended to focus on, the gear subteam concentrated on mounting the gear intake to the robot.

Finally, the subteam that needs a working electronics board the most, programming, continued the process of "debugging". This was a two-fold process: Finding errors and fixing them. As it turned out, finding errors is much easier than fixing them.

The team also enjoyed a delicious pasta dinner, which the team ate as we had some very...loud discussions. These discussions were so loud that one mentor considered making the robotics room soundproof.
