Week 6 - It moves!

In this picture we are are building our second robot that is going to be used for practicing.We have also made a decision of what controler we are going to use in pi wars.
In this picture or schools 3D printer is printing a pig for our decoration. we are going to stick onto our robot for decoration.
                  We have been testing our robot on different                              terrain. In this picture we are driving it on a straight line.

This is the moon which our moon pig is going to stand on holding a flag of the school.
                   Here is a picture of us trying to drive the robot                         through a course,we also tried some turns.

Week 5 - Balloons, Robots and Pigs

Today we split up into three groups:

One was papie mashie-ing a balloon to make the moon.

The other group decided to make a 3D model of the space pig and at the end of the lesson we started to print it out in the 3D printer.

We also created build another version of the robot we are going to use in the competition as a backup.

Mr Hughes was still working on the code.

Week 4 - We have a name...

This week we decided on our design for our robot and our team name, Latymer Space Pigs!

The design was a moon with a PIG holding the latymer flag on top. 

Mr Hughes was trying to debug some confusing code. 

some people were taking measurements and designing SPACE PIGS, on tinkercad it was very fun :) We are going to try and 3D print the SPACE PIG!!!!!!!
