Since this is the last meet day of the program this year, you will be battling against other participants of the Boys and Girls STEM Program! We will have a friendly competition with a branch-style competition to determine the winner.
The priority of today will be to complete and begin practice driving your SumoBot. Finish any hot gluing you did not complete last meeting (do not glue the top cover). After, secure the motor mounts + wheels with nylon screws and nuts. Attach your Arduino Boards, Breakout Boards, and 6 AA battery holders. Consult with one of the members or mentors to set up wifi connection to begin practice driving your bot!
Customize your SumoBot with markers and other coloring tools to customize your SumoBot. Once completed begin hot gluing your chassis. Fold the dashed lines marked on your flat cardboard cutout. Glue the folds in to secure your bot. Be sure to not glue your top-cover on, next meeting we will add in your electronical components.
Open and view the Onshape Series (link down below) and view the first two videos (Documents & UI and Part Studios). Follow the instruction given in the "Part Studios" video and create a part studio, within your "First Name_Sumo Bots" document, of the exact same part as is modeled in the tutorial. Rename the part studio "my_first_part". View the remaining 4 videos ( Multipart, Assemblies, Drawings, and Mobile) by the next session.
We will be using the cloud-based Onshape CAD system for design. Because it runs in your internet browser (chrome) you will be able to work on your projects from any computer or iPad.
