Day 4: Using old robots

Today each subteam was able to prototype their different designs. While these prototypes may not look as robust or aesthetically pleasing as our final product, they were helpful (and sometimes even functional) regardless. Over the course of prototyping, an intriguing trend emerged: old robots, although shells of their former glory, are surprisingly popular with subteams looking for something to prototype with. Throughout the course of this old meeting, subteams used every old robot available to supplement the prototyping process, adding many mechanisms to the robots to test their ideas.
