On Saturday, we will be splitting up into multiple groups to work on different projects. The mentor who was teaching CAD to one group last time is returning to help again. If you want to continue learning CAD, please show up from 2:00 to 5:00.
The next group will be working on some research and development. Some of our team mentors have found a special glue that sticks to aluminum and has one-third of the strength of aluminum itself. We may be able to use this glue during build season to partially or entirely replace the lengthy process of welding, and possibly cut up to a week off of our build time. However, the glue still needs to be tested to see if it's going to fit our needs. We need a group of team members working on that on Saturday. We'll be working on it from 4:00 to 6:00.
We're also having a college-age mentor (who was a Spartan Robotics Team Captain) come to teach about electronics. If you're interested in learning more about electronics, please plan on attending his workshop from 4:00 to 6:00.
Lastly, we are going to start a project that we need many team members to help with. An adult mentor is going to head up an effort to organize the lab and make it functional and efficient for build season. If you are willing and able to help with this, please show up any time between 2:00 and 6:00. Remember, lab organization is part of every team member's responsibility.
All these meetings will be in Room 112 (or in the lab) on this upcoming Saturday (the 29th).
