Reflections For This Meeting: 

We are very happy that Alice fits into the Pelican case.

 Today we first created a list of things that have to be done in the near future - some of which we know we have to finish today because they are due tomorrow (STEMposium video editing).
We also have decided to put an article onto the Stanceworks forum (along with create a video of Alice stancing) - to show off what our robot can do and get some of their sponsors and engineers aware of FTC.


This is our whiteboard 'to do' list for today and the immediate future. The first thing we did was check to see if Alice fits into our pelican box - and once we took the front hammer wheels off - we were very happy to see that she does fit. This will make transportation to World much easier and safer than the big box we made ourselves and used last year.

Here is the whole team - Alejandro is finishing the STEMposium video editing , Chris and I are discussing the best way to approach a stance video of the robot, and Gavin is in the background working on programming concepts.

The 4 of us empty out some space in the dining room and work on filming Alice for the Stanceworks video. We used some camera tricks (a skateboard) and lighting tricks to make the video look good.

We filmed the robot moving in different directions and going in and out of stance.

We also took some good detailed photos of Alice to also post on the forum.

Here I am working on the stancing video for Stanceworks. I am editing it using Final Cut. I was very happy with the final outcome - and how good our robot looks in the video - and we posted the video onto YouTube and Chris posted it onto the Stanceworks forums.
