Day 27: Integration

Today, most of us worked on making terrible metaphors about tiling integration, programming, or our climb subsystem. Our robot is definitely coming together, almost enough to be driving (and definitely enough to have electrical issues). We also started brainstorming names, many of which have a lot of... ptersonality. We didn't have very many people there today, but it was nice to see everyone working! Some of our mentors even started cleaning up the shop, since it's gotten (more than) a little messy over the course of build season.

In other news, we had some pasta for lunch (since we have a bunch of random food in our fridge now). However, the mentors did have some trouble getting everyone to stop working and actually eat when the food was ready.

This week, we're hoping to finish mounting the rest of our systems, as well as get programming and drive practice done. We're going to have to work pretty hard in order to be ready for our first competition on Saturday, but it's nice to know that we're getting stuff done.
