For the project, the team continued researching more about converting methane in a gas form, to methane in a liquid form. Last practice, the team thought that when deforesting to build a dam, companies leave the trees under the water. They found that when trees decompose they release methane which is worse than carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Today, the team found that companies clear out any trees that could fall onto the dams, for safety precautions. After finding this out, the team continued researching about hydro-electric energy, coming up with a clever way of using water to create electricity. The solution would use a source of water that is always moving, and wouldn't be too far off the coast.
On the robot, the team continued to build the robot, finding up the wall around it and a crucial attachment for it. This attachment uses two motors and will assist in completing many of the missions on the table.
As a core values and team building activity, the team was given 7 minutes to flip a tarp that they were standing on, without stepping off of it. Astonishingly, the team finished in only 2 minutes, quickly learning form their first mistake. We then played outside and had lots of fun.
To end off practice, each team member presented what they did today in a video.
