We are setting up our robot.

Our robot is doing a mission.

This is the new jig we made.
We were working on making the costumes for our presentation.

We were working on a robot using big wheels.

Hooray! Our robot completed a mission.

We are lining up the robot using the jig.

This is a picture of one of the robots that was designed

We are doing our team cheer. Go robots!
Today, we made up a cheer to support our robot team in the games.  We are also still working on using two robots, and are currently trying out a new robot with a ball caster.  The research group worked on a script for our presentation.  They are also designing the costumes.  Good job today, Mekanikal Maniaks!

The research  crew continued their work.  We decided on a name for our bandaid, the DiaAid.  This is short for Diabetic Bandaid.  Our robot builders have two similar robots - one has big wheels, and the other has smaller wheels.  We're trying to see which one is better.  We also decided on a design for our team shirt.  Thank you to Mrs. Imanaka who has been working on this.
