We have finished all of our challenges in our two person group we didn't succeed much in the tug of war competition due to our flawed building design. We are now creating a 6 person group and are going to have to create a robot for a Kobe competition. So on wards to the next robot competition and hopefully that goes better than the last one.

Today is the last day to adapt our robot to the table's. We are going to line our wheels with tape and add some more grip to the base so our robot will actually move this time. We have to fix our one broken gear so that our left side will be able to move finally and besides that we should be fine for the tug of ear on Tuesday.

We witnessed our robot win its first match against Theo Alec and Izabella's robot (because i paid off the ref to drop their robot) and then we also witnessed our first loss against Nick Schuab's robot because one of our wheels fell of and we never recovered from that. We did worse than expected because we are tetrix and lost to a vex but considering we were in a two person group with a couple of absences in between I believe we did alright of course we wanted to win it all but the chances of that happening were pretty slim. All in all I feel pretty confident that we can win our next challenge given to us given what we know now about our robot's build design.

This week is the week of the Tug of War competition. Starting on Tuesday we have to turn in all of our work and we cant change any of our robots stuff. We are going against Brandon's robot first because they are the only other tetrix robot and then we'll go from there. But until then we are finishing our solid works robot and touching up our robot by adding weight to it using a dumbbell and by tightening up all our screws.

This is the last week before the challenge. We are putting the finishing touches on to our solid works robot. We have everything done on our physical robot except for the weight which we are bringing in next week in preparation for the robot competition. I Am planning to win one round minimum because our robot is a lot larger than the others I believe we should have a few easy wins in our future (cough cough Theo's robot).

We have our robot fully coded and it is able to move. We are now looking for something to add weight to our robot while keeping it mobile and without going over the weight limit. We are starting to look for the parts on solid-works so we can construct it there as well. We plan to be done with everything before the end of next week but we'll see how that turns out.
