Today we finished the controllable tetrahedron challenge. It took a while to practice but we got it with 29 seconds to spare from a total of a minute. Our moving are was very choppy but we fixed it with a new motor. Next class we will try and complete the autonomous challenge.

Today I finished the clawbot in its construction. I also programmed it, and it can drive and move the claw up and down. Next class Jesse will bring in straws so we can do the tetrahedron challenge.

Today is AP World testing so that means Isaac isn't here. That means today I will work on solidworks to get ready for the next certification. Right now I've done about 6 parts today and I will do more next class.

Today we finished the figure eight, it took like a few weeks, but we did it. Finally, it is completed and now we are starting the next thing, the Tetrahedron challenge. Since Jesse is working on Solidworks, now i'm doing the clawbot, the making of.

We are still both working on our figure eight. Since the next challenge is already in we both have zeros, so our goal is to finish this next week. I already did two figure eights at the end of class, so next Tuesday we hope we can finish, but at this point I do not have high hopes.

Today we are still working on our figure eight for probably the sixth week. We have completed the first figure but need the second. Now today we have tried a new think of making it commentary and also charging the battery between takes.

Today we are still trying to do our figure eight. Every time we do it we seem to have a new problem that happens. Now we have decided to charge our batteries between every few runs. This, we hope, well fix some of the problems that we have so far.
