Robotics 2.0 Week 2
On Monday, students learned a new way to attach lift bars to their robot using screw joints. Screw joints minimize friction in students' lift systems and allow them to achieve faster and more efficient builds.
Mr. Sit showcases the different types of screw joints for students
Bradley helps team Utt build their screw joints
Team Orchard Hills plans their lift
On Tuesday, students continued to plan their manipulators which will allow them to pick up cubes for the new VEX game.
On Wednesday, students build and refine their lift to attach to the chassis they built last week.
Team Pioneer is interviewed by Mrs. Williams, TUSD Robotics Lead, to improve their competition readiness.
Team Utt works on building their lift
Team Orchard Hills builds the two sides of their lift
On day 4, students complete their lifts, attach them to their chassis.
