Meeting 005

Last week we tried to work as 2 teams with not so familiar ones ending in a single group and building a concept - rotating base - that successfully crashed at the end. This week we decided to work as a single team and see that the sorter prototype is taking shape and form of a working mechanism.

The idea to test was to slide the sorter back and forth and drop the M&M at appropriate position. I wish there would be photos to share: at the end of the meeting the chamber was moving smoothly and experimental drop of the M&M was accepted by a round of applause.

Next week we can try to use the same light sensor for positioning by scanning gray and yellow colored bricks (another picture could be placed here). Doug, our Lego Expert, will not be there with us. Happy Vacation Doug!
