anna can't figure out how to post so i am posting this for her:
Today Shifrah, Sarah R, Divya and I [Anna] were able to work on a pneumatics system to possibly use as a "kicker" for the robot. Jessa came by and helped us figure out what the pieces in the pneumatics boxes were for. After numerous trials and resealing the connections with teflon tape we were able to get the system to work! Currently the "kicker" dosn't move very quickly, but hopefully we will soon be able to connect it to some electronics so that we can get a good prototype up and running!
