Day 20: Bumpers and Birdies

Today some parts arrived! It only took us two hours to find them because the school put them in the wrong room. Somebody thought they were football helmets.

All the parts were for drivebase (including some electronics). The good thing is that drivebase can start building. The bad news is that some other subsystems are still blocked. For example, lift worked on bumpers and birdies today because their parts haven't come yet. We will give out the birdies during competition.

Other subsystems were less blocked. Intake has a working system, which is an accomplishment. After all, their design wasn't even finalized a few days before.

Climber worked on brackets and CAD. They also experimented with some 3D printers for a project.
