E5 Labs 2 and 3

For the next two weeks you will be constructing your robots.  Either this week or next (according to the schedule below) you will be going to the machine shop to make the body for your robot.  You should still come to the mural room at the beginning of lab to get materials and further instruction.  Here is a drawing of the robot chassis.

During the next two weeks you should also be working on completing the computer that will control your robot.  This involves some rather involved soldering, so you shouldn't put it off to the last minute, or expect to get it done in only one or two lab periods.  To get an idea for what is involved you can go to the handyboard web page (the handyboard is the name of the computer you will be using.  Specific assembly instructions are given,  though we will give you our own printed version with a check list (our version has a few slight changes from the posted version).
