Prototyping Blog Post By THE SUPER SAIYAN SCIENTISTS!!!!!

Super Saiyan Scientists

What is the state of your project right now?

We are experimenting with a small joystick to find out the controls and how we would go about using it.

What did you accomplish this meeting? (new improvements, updates)

We had a soldering session and we soldered the joystick to a PCB (aka circuit board) and we hooked it up to a breadboard and had it turn on and off an LED light

Who worked on what?

Jaquan and Julian soldered the metal prongs to the PCB and Zaheer and Amanda soldered the joystick to the PCB

What is your plan for next week?

Next week we plan to use the joystick with the arduino and plan our joystick design.

The people that can come are

Julian

Amanda

Zaheer

Jaquan

Both Amanda and Jaquan can come early
