Goals:  

All

  • To start creating a prototype hook, lift, claw, and drive train.

Meeting Notes

The team split up into three groups

  • Charles and Cameron:
    • Scratched their idea for using a gear with rubber bands to intake the minerals and started to design a new mechanism that had a basket that would scoop the minerals. Then slide them back on a linear slide, then up and dumped backwards into the cargo hold.
  • Alex:
    • Started programming basic driving codes to get a head start on programming for the season
  • Drew and Zach:
    • Finished making the linear lift and attached it to the drive train. After that they put on a motor and started testing it. The lift worked.
