Today, my group worked to build a piston actuated lifting prototype system that would help us complete several obstacles. We may have had many difficulties, but we ended up with a product that was not only reliable, but had enough space to include many other parts that may help us get far in our competition. I had lots of help from my teammates, and even though there were points where we thought it couldn’t be done, we made sure we didn’t put our heads down. We stayed confident to finish our prototype! I had a lot of fun today and it wouldn’t have been as great if I weren’t with my team and mentors
