Day 13 Journal, July 30, 2007

30 07 2007

Time is slipping away for some of the teams.  Robots still need some design changes and additional programming.  All of the teams neew to put the final touches on your PowerPoint.  However, the greatest PowerPoint in the world is not worth much unless your robot can perform.

What steps did your team take today to prepare for Thursday’s competition? 

Let’s make a list of these, at least five (5) tasks that you accomplished today as a team.

What personal milestones did you accomplish today?  Please list at least two.

    We were trying to fit the arm onto the RCX, with little success. We got to the coral reef with a lot of success. We had messed up a few times but we will keep trying. We also got into a couple arguments; But we will try to settle them and try to work together to win the competition.

    powerpoint design
    talking points

    I didn’t get over any milestones and I’m tired of all these teachers jumping on my back every time something goes wrong. They don’t understand I don’t take LEGOS so serious to the point where I’m going to freak out if it goes wrong. They say I’m smart but I don’t apply myself to the work. IT’S CAMP I’M NOT SUPPOSED TO BE DOING WORK. But anywho we got some laughs in but i was supposed to be working on the robot so i can’t do that anymore and we only get a 10 MINUTE BREAK so we can’t talk much. I thought camp was about having fun. Well I’m not

    Today was horrible!! We got alot of laughs in with Nyjah but we barley got any work done I don’t want to think ablout Tuesday or Wensday!! My program kept deleting itself and I got stuck trying to do it over again. It was alright though we got together at the end. We didn’t accomplish much but we accomplished laughing and talking (more like gossiping). Nick wasn’t here so we decided to take our team picture tommorow. Building was horrible we are NOT going to be done in time unless we really strart working together and somone starts helping me with programing. 🙁

    We worked towards our goal by wrapping up the powerpoint, finding a new background, fixing some tweaks in the program, rebuilding the robot, and adding the claws to our robot.

    My personal accomplishments for today was pretty much finishing the powerpoint and not being too ‘silly’ today.

    Fist we started to run the progrm to see what it would do because we just came from a week of fun. Then it was going great until the programer needed a peice to build the robot. then it broke and every thing came apart. Then I got really frustrated and mad. Then brad helped me fix it because the wheel wasn’t working. Then we had an argument about who broke the Gripper. Brandi made me broke it because she syaryed yelling at me saying stop doing this stop doing that it’s confusing and it causes stress. by
