Day 22: Waiting for parts

Today some parts arrived! Most of them were for the drive base, which a few team members are currently assembling. Right now, they’re working on building the wheels.

Intake added pool noodles to their system “for squishiness”. They labeled each pool noodle with a sharpie. They also added something that will help hold the cube in place. (I won’t specify what the part is, but it’s a pretty creative design).

The rest of the team was not nearly as productive. Climber worked on tapping some metal parts (key word: worked on). Lift waited for parts (we ran out of birdie and button supplies) and watched drive base work.

But nobody was (un)productive as the Lead Programmer, who watched a robot drive in circles…for hours.
