The first day of class, our professor (who is absolutely crazy and awesome) gave us some materials. Shall I introduce them? Of course!
I shall first introduce the MOTOR. This little motor is supposed to be able to output a ton of torque with 2 AA batteries! Now we'll see about that :-/
The next component: gears! We have 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 tooth gears. These should enable our team to take all the speed from the motor to carry a couple books up a ramp. It's also great to note that these are made in CANADA :-)
I'll be sure to update when we create our gear box....I'm so excited! Did I mention that we have to also write poems for this project? Talk about being well-rounded :-)
