Day 9: Mini-Golf Preparations

We had a very productive day as teams prepared for mini-golf next week. Teams need to build a robot that can move the ball; the robot is the golf club. Another requirement is that they need to program their robot to golf using autonomous movements. They need to write programs so their bot has a long-distance, short-distance, and other types of ball movements. The groans were loud from many who had built remote controls in the last two days, yet they can go back to remote control after golfing.

Families have been emailed about which day their child golfs next week. We will be back before our usual noon dismissal. Golfbot are packed and ready to go first thing Monday morning. Those golfing on Tuesday have chosen to make many changes to their robots and will be busy finishing programming Monday.
