The STEM Club had a great meeting on the 3rd. We started off by welcoming the newcomers and passing out the role choosing sheets. Just a reminder, the mission and project roles are all out.
After we got that sorted out, we showed the progress for the FLL robot that is going to be in the competition. This year, our robot has a modular design to help prevent the long times that it took for the attachments on the robot to go on and off last year. With the new modular design, the robot only has to be “unplugged” from one base and “plugged” into another base.
Then, the project team took a turn to show their progress. They chose blizzards as their topic and people slipping on sidewalks as their problem. Their solution so far is a solar powered heated walkway. Now, all that’s left is to build it!
There was a long period of idea generating after that. There were many ideas that we came up with, ranging from a lightning collector for additional power to contacting news stations from outreach. Finally, we watched some videos.
All in all, this meeting was very successful. We showed our progress, gave our team members a chance for idea generation, and showed some videos.
