We started off the night with a delicious meal of pasta and bread. During dinner, we voted on names for our robot. Out of ones such as Rue (from the Hunger Games), Cuzco (as in the city in Peru), and Neil (after Neil Armstrong), we decided on the name Parker (as in Peter Parker, Spiderman’s alter ego).
After dinner, Build split into groups working on the Pusher Downer, Mailbox (also known as the Flipper-Offer), and the bumpers. Programming worked on the electronics board. My group worked to finish up the bumpers and staple the cloth coverings on. On group member unfortunately encountered an accident with the stapling gun, but was okay after going to urgent care. As a result of the accident, all members learned to pay extra attention to the newly enforced safety regulations.
