Matt M. continued to work on the outreach page for the team's website, now other people can see what great accomplishments the SuperNURDs have made.
Today Alex fiberglassed the outside of one of the mascots bodies. He then cut out the helmet panels. And then helped with some of the field elements.
The programming team consisting of Tyler, Tayler, and Zack added 2 more talons to support tank drive. They also added the robotDrive method in robot.java and added the respective joysticks to be used for robotDrive.
Today the design team consisting of Blake, Makenzie, and Mr. Marler ruled out the possibility of changing our frame design. Though it would have increased speed when picking up, we ultimately decided against it because of complexity of the drive train and the moving of motors, supports, and electronics.
