Making sure that all the supplies are organized and that everyone can navigate them is very important for the UberBots.
Otherwise, everything would be cluttered and nobody would be able to find the parts they needed.
So, this week, they cleaned out their workroom and made sure everything was neatly organized. One large part of that was to sort and rearrange all of the old pieces of metal. In order to keep all of the metal in convenient places, they sorted the pieces by shape, purpose, and size.
However, organization wasn’t the only purpose. Then team needed to get to know what parts they had and what was available. They need to know what different pieces look like and what they are called. This way, when they’re building the robot this year, they will be able to easily locate any supplies that they need.
The UberBots also used this opportunity to dismantle pieces from last year. Metal can be expensive, so they reuse as much as they can. This mostly consisted of removing rivets and breaking things down to their original pieces. This required some important equipment, such as hand drills. That also transformed this into time for members to learn how to use this equipment safely and efficiently without damaging themselves of the tools.
Now, after reorganizing, the team has most of their supplies ready for build season.
