Day 7: we're getting close to a prototype battle

Electrical finished wiring up their bellypan on the protobot. Then they said their goodbyes and finally the protobot now named the programming bot, moved on to programming.

The slingshot team made it their goal to make a retracting and releasing mechanical system to make it launch more efficiently. They attached surgical tubing that pulls back the sliding box structure using a 10:1 gear box and motor. They also welded chain to the sprocket in order to secure it to axle on sliding mechanism.

To get a more accurate imitation of shooting onto the scale, the catapult team built a wooden chassis to support their arm. They also had electrical help them hook up pneumatics and a quick board.
