The group that I worked in didn't work very well together, we pushed on forward, and we finished our Adobe Spark Pages on time.
Reflection entry 1: 24, 4, 2017
This time in class we started working on how the robot would move, should we use tracks or tires? We discussed and decided that tracks would give robot more traction. So we added the tracks to the frame of the robot.
Reflection entry 2: 27,4, 2017
This lesson Jade helped with the robot to make a main frame. This mainframe was just a prototype so we are probably not going to use it in the future.
Reflection entry 3: 1, 5, 2017
In the first part of the period we had to go to the Anzac assembly, but the other half of the lesson we got out our robot and started to add some more additions.
Reflection entry 4: 4, 5, 2017
Today we added the robot computer onto the robot. We also fiddled around with the remote control. We also took some time to think of ideas to add onto the robot.
Reflection entry 5: 5, 8, 2017
Today we decided to prototype with adding a moving arm but unfountunately that didn't work. After that Jade made a punching arm instead, which worked very well.
Reflection entry 6: 15.5.2017
Today we added more support to our robot. We also decided to make it hold a knife that spins around. We also had a little game this lesson, called battle bots, which helped us decide where it wasn't stable. Next lesson we are going to finish off the exoskeleton.
Reflection entry 7: 18.5.2017
Today we finished our prototyping, and we also made two arms that both spin.
Reflection entry 8: 24.5.2017
Today we made our third moving part; the robots eye blink. We used a set of "Little Minds Kits". Next lesson we are going to start adding the skin and the outside of the robot.
Reflection entry 9: 25.5.2017
Today when we were thinking of what our robot would look like, "someone in our group" threw a tyre at our robot so I had to rebuild the whole robot again. I managed o fix it in time of the class.

18,5: Today we added an arm and it was too low. We had to stack some Lego bricks on in between the other piece of Lego to succeed.
24.5: Today when we added our ranks to the robot they where not stable enough. I had to add an extra support beam so they locked in place.
25.5: Today someone threw a Lego tire at our robot so I had to rebuild the whole thing before break. Luckily I remembered how it was made so I could rebuild it.
The robot is going to use math by programming on an minstorm app. We are also brining mechanics into this because we are using gears and motors.
