Day 1 August 1, 2018
Hello, the name is Gilbert Indrid the Third, the teal astronaut and I'm part of the space team, Lorbotics Black #59. There are a total of 9 of us, but we recently found out that one of our guys may or might not be missing, oops, so hopefully we can find them. Anyways our work time started at 8:30 A.M, seven of us arrived for the meeting. Rigth now two of our team mates are on a mission which is the reason they are not here. Back to our work, once it turned 9:00 A.M we reviewed the FLL Into Orbit Season videos. We first watched the one about the board and what was needed to complete the missions and how much each missions are worth. We began to brainstorm ideas for the robot and mission strategies, filling out post-its for attachment ideas and programming strategies. Soon after we began to do post-its for project ideas. We split it into two categories, physical problems and social problems. We came to problems that involve health, nutrition, radiation, and social problems. We want to come back tomorrow with more personal problems, for example, how would we feel if we where in space and couldn't go home in about a year. If you want to know, maybe not but I would definitely miss my comfortable bed.
After we began to work on some expectations for each other. We worked on preparation, attitude, commitment, and effort. We wrote down what wouldn't be acceptable on pink post-its, what is expected on yellow post-its, and what exceeding on task looks like on green post-its. After we went over the post-its and discussed if each belonged in the right place.
Finally we worked on what each of us as a team, need to improve. We were given a paper to self rate ourselves from 1 to 10 in five categories. Research, writing, presentation, programming, and robot design. I'm pretty sure we are all at least above twos and threes, if not than we really need to work. Anyways after we rated ourselves we got a paper to write down three things we want to practice and improve on over the month of August.
Tomorrow we will discusses more on project and maybe a bit of starting robot design. Well that's all for now, teal astronaut out!
