It’s that time of season once more, when it gets deathly cold and the sun goes down beyond the horizon much earlier than usual. Despite this, the ever-working members of robotics assembled at the lab on time and ready to work.
Nicole, member of the Business team, was awarded the famed Gold Wrench for her hard work. The room was full of applause for her, as she definitely deserved this gracious award.
Prototype team, consisting of Lauren, Karin and Meetkumar this day, continued their work on the flywheel. With the design all but over, the team has continued the physical aspect of the project. This includes cutting the parts out and then assembling them.
Welding member Roupen helped out the Prototype team with their labors on the flywheel construction.
Rookie member Eden spent the time practicing welding, so he can quickly master the fine art and no longer need Roupen’s guidance at all times.
Daniel of Programming continued the logger coding. Other members John, Bhavin, and Jake conducted their own coding, but on different things. John was working on the autonomous code for the robot, and Bhavin resumed coding SnapDragon. Jake attempted to fix the battery program so the robot would be able to perform its tasks.
Lathe member Lousaper was working under the teaching of Mr. Black. Together, she learned how to set up new tools inside of the Lathe.
Dustin and Nanor worked under Mr. Widholm’s guidance to set up their own tools inside of the Mill.
CAD members worked together to start their presentation. Individually, Anthony K. worked on his toolbox and Claire made an intake mechanism.
Mikia practicing pocketing on an electronics plate using Autodesk Inventor. Sipan finalized the Fall 2015 robot update, we were all so proud of him.
Jonna of CAM worked on the presentation while James helped out Prototype team.
Over on Animation, Anthony C. and Chris brainstormed safety animation ideas. Once they figure out a proper scheme, they will set out to animate it into life.
Simulation team member Jacob continued ODE and he added drag to the football’s trajectory project. Yerine conducted research to improve their presentation, it’s setting up to look real good.
Business team had a very busy work day, Nicole wrote content for the 696 Brand Guide, and also created the cover for the guide. She was also able to vectorize the sponsor logos. Arvin conducted research on the entrepreneurship essay and Anna hung up the canvassed shirts (with help from the other members).
Andrea continued the spreadsheet work and categorization for the light bulbs that members were selling like hot-cakes.
And of course, last but completely not least, our divine Leadership team. Our ever celestial President Mika was, as always, working at top notch for the team. Mika helped out CAD and Prototype team on their individual team activities. She then created a presentation to inform the team of what Presentation Day asks of them. Mika then created a team calendar for the upcoming build season.
The team’s very own exalted Vice-President also had a full day. Alexander helped out the CAD team with their various work, then he went over to Programming and assisted Jake with his troubles. Then Alexander continued his elevator design with magnificent speed and efficiency. The team is so lucky to have a member such as him.
With the sun long gone, the lab was vacated and closed around 7:00, and the individual members went home to work on their homework like the good students they are.
