sea perch testing
Working with Charles County Parks and Recreation, we were able to schedule testing time at Lackey High School pool. First objective: establish proper buoyancy for the Sea Perch vehicles. Some teams added weight. Some cut off foam. Next objective: get the Sea Perches to steer in a straight line and up and down. Motors were repositioned. Some teams discovered wiring problems. Third objective: travel through a simple obstacle course made from hula hoops fastened to the lane lines. Abby's team was the first (and only?) to successfully make it through the course. A subsequent "Sea Perch Tweaking Day" is planned for Nov 8. Next pool testing day is Nov 22.
