Time is running out!
That date sometime in the future is a little over a week away!! WHAT?!
Progress on swerve has picked up speed on the mechanical side. Tommy’s out this week with his real job and stuff, so Brian and Cody have taken charge of machining. They’re doing a pretty awesome job with their newfound expertise, and when swerve is finally installed, it will be thanks to them. So thanks!
Also, a younger group of students are really stepping it up and taking tremendous initiative. Some of them even completed the final version of the defense mechanism today! Here’s a late picture of the supporting spring:
Programming is hitting some roadblocks with swerve. Apparently, Ricky and Gooby had some miscommunication regarding the wiring, and although he can establish connection, the code won’t move the robot. 🙁 Hopefully we can get that straightened out tomorrow.
I actually remembered my personal blog exists last night, so I wrote in that one as well… Maybe I should charge by the hour. 😉
Awards continue to make progress. Chairman’s essay has luckily received the Brian stamp of approval, but the executive summary and entrepreneurship award still have a long way to go. And we legitimately only have a week left. #letsdothis
Finally, Marcus from WAHS (and also in engineering) has been gracious enough to give us a hand with Chairman’s video submission. So he and our brilliant media man Zach C. are collaborating and editing together. We’re continuously having interviews and selecting relevant clips, so hopefully that’ll come together well!
(seriously, look how cool this picture is- Zach is the man :D)
Good luck to all Broward Science Fair participants this Friday! I know it’s not really relevant but I’m stressing, and there have to be some others who are as well… XD Wish me luck!
