Lab Opening Time: 3:00 PM
Mr. Black and Mr. Hoard had a meeting with the team at the beginning of the day to showcase just how little time the team has left. Less than a week left leaves no room for error at this point: we need to finish.
One of the first things that happened was cleaning up the lab for the incoming powder coat pieces. With these incoming pieces, the team could start to put the puzzle pieces together to (hopefully) get a robot that functioned as it was designed to. One huge problem right now is the fact that manufacturing for the elevator forks is still not happening because they aren’t even designed yet.
With the set backs already going on, the programming team continued working with the robot. Programming this year is vastly different from years prior due to the swerve gearboxes which pose a completely new problem to the mix.
Mr. Black and Roupen were working on assembling the solenoid manifold while preparations for assembly happened.
Once the manifold was assembled, it was mounted along with the PCM to the back electronics plate. The comically short wires were routed

Meanwhile, the intakes were also mounted.
Tomorrow, along with the rest of the weekend, is starting to look like the long hours and late night pizzas the team had been waiting for.
Lab Closing Time: 11:30 PM
