Monday Meeting

 

     This monday, we did quite a bit.  In the morning, we rehersed our 10 minute presentation for a bit, than the CBS 13 news crew came in, and filmed for about an hour.  Right after that, we headed out to the Soroptomists club, and presented there, and mad $592 dollars, which was amazing!  When we got back to the school, we worked with the robot a bit, and went over some questions we've had about forest guard.

    

Monday Meeting

 

     This monday, after hearing we were selected to go to go to Copengagen, we worked quite a bit on presentation.  We started with a round table as usual, and then worked on a 10 minute presentation that we can perfom for anyone.  So we wrote out our scripts, and had a couple hours to rehearse them.  We did the presentation computerless, which turned out fine, and then right after that we decided to do it as fast as we could, and did our over 5 minute presentation in 3:21 minutes, which was very fun.

Friday meeting/radio

We had a meeting friday, where we started with doing the presentation, and we went through it great!  After that, we started on the table runs.  With two of our three teams getting 355, I think we did pretty well!!

After the meeting we went to the radio, we designated Faith the main spokeswoman, who sat in the hot seat with the interviewer.  We only had 10 minutes of air time, but we got out what we needed!

 

Monday's Meeting!

 At yesterday's meeting, we started off with a round table, and talked about what we needed to get done that day.  We decided that we needed to work on the table quite a bit, so we split into our 3 teams (Blue Team, Red Team, and Black Team) and took turns running  the table.  Each team got about 6 turns, and I could see the progress even through just this meeting.  Over all, it was a great meeting!

 

Today's meeting

Today we started the day off with a round table, and talked about our "competetion" Monday night.  We talked about things we could improve on all our topics.  After that, we went on to fixing the robot, it had frozen while trying to download a mission, and that took quite a while.  Once that was reset, and after lunch, we downloaded all the programs freshly, in order for the table runners.  we tweaked the programs a bit, worked on some of our my blocks, and did several runs, with both team A and team 1.  It was a good meeting!

 

Today's meeting

Today, we started the day with a round table as usual.  After that, we had project judging, and teamwork right after it.  When we were done with that, we split up into groups, me Faith and Andrew started on a find-and-align program, which took almost 1 hour, and was not easy.  But, I learned a lot from it, so that was good.  After lunch, (the program took that long!) we finally used it for the original purpose, me and Bobby's levee blocks program.  We got that one working great, and then we did engineering judging.  After that was done, in the last 5/10 minutes  read more »

Wednesday at Cal Fire

On Wednesday morning, me, Heidi, and Alan went to Cal Fire, to meet with Matthew Reichmann, a forester at Cal Fire.  We went to his office, and talked about the placement of the cameras.  He thought it was a good plan, and to put them where we were thinking.  After a bit, we went to Elsa Huck's office, and he showed us some maps of where fires are most common.  We got a good book which we can use for information, and it has the links to the maps in there too.  Thank you Cal Fire!

Monday's meeting

On monday, we started the day with a round table as usual, then we started on building, programming, and presentationing.  I worked on building our robot, (not sure which one it is now) and got it mostly finished.  I still need to attach the third motor, but that shouldn't be too hard, since there are several good places to link it to.  Sorry for the delay in my blog!
