Test Result: Nanotube Strength
IMG_3849.JPGThe first mission we tested was the Nanotube Strength.  We were able to attach a test bumper and we have been able to successfully move the truck onto the platform.  Our timer rang before we were able to complete the mission, but we did get a good idea on ways to successfully knock the button.  If we used the arm, as in one of our ideas, we would have to make it longer and stronger.
Test Name:  Nanotube Strength Test
What we Learned:  We learned that this robot is able to support various attachments that we can use to complete this mission without attaching or detaching the pieces
Challenges:  Our bumper must be high enough that it doesn't get caught on the platform or the wheels of the dumptruck, but it must be low enough that it will hit the truck.  It needs to be really strong.  We need to find a way to attach a second bumper that we can use to hit the button that we don't need to attach or detach.
Next Action:  Push the button to lift the platform and truck.
