Today, the design groups finished prototyping and presented their full robot designs to the rest of the team. A lot of interesting prototypes were demonstrated, ranging from string-and-PVC contraptions and cardboard gears to full shooters that shot... fast. Very fast. Overall, the groups had a lot of great ideas, and we're really looking forward to seeing them all come together in a final robot design.
The team also enjoyed a taco dinner (undoubtedly the first of many to come), and even ended the meeting early! Again, we would like to thank all of the parents and mentors who are making this build season possible. For now, we're looking forward to a break (though not too much...) while Senior Design Team creates a final design based on the work the groups have done these past few days. We'll see which ideas survived on Sunday.
