Hi, I’m Jonás again and this is my last post of the trimester. We worked hard and fast what has led us to an error on the circuit CockroachBot, everything went very well during these weeks of work in the workshop, we worked with Cindy and my bandmates Vania and Hero.
Now I’ve finally finished my part, that was making the project case, Mickey Mouse shaped and very well painted. I embedded ears making a trench in the case so that the ears will be easily placed .
We also had to make new wheels because the ones that we’ve made had a too big hole for the motor shafts. So, in a couple of classes I am sure that we will finish the project.
This is my last post. I´ll will tell you about recent cockroachbot news!
Finally our CockroachBot is walking…but a bit slow… It turns on itself and I felt so disappointed about. Anyway, the jigsaw has solved everything. The problem was that the wood wheels were pretty heavy and the poor engines were wheezing! Now we are working in lighter ones in cork that should solve the problem. And, evidently, I used the jigsaw to cut it down. Jigsaw rocks!
The last week Jose Miguel and Jorge have been fixing the CockroachBot because we have had few problems with the antennas and wheels, but they are working hard on it.
And me I’ve finished the case. To get a ladybug pattern, I painted it in black and I made some circles with tape and glue. After I painted everything in red and removed the circles. I also painted the wings, just need to place them.
In my group, formed by Herón, Jonás and me, we are doing it well and little things rest. We have almost done everything except the antennas and the wheels, because we are changing them since the others were not working as we wanted.
Besides the Crashing CockroachBot Project, we are now working in a second project which consists in organizing a virtual trip to three cities in the world, so we have to look for the hotels, the transport, places to visit in every site … and also to prepare the budget for the full trip with all the expenses. We can do this project alone or in pairs, and we will finish by preparing a Prezi to present it.
