Team Statement:
The members of the Edison Engineering Team have a common interest and goal: enhancing our learning experience through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We have come together to take on the challenge set forth by "Current Events” by building an advance technological robot which will harvest the recyclable plastics and microplastics from the gyres and process the materials for use in 3D printers to construct different types of building blocks for artificial reefs. Our special robotic design utilizes a special claw which can easily accomplish these tasks. The team has worked long hours designing and fabricating the different components of the robot. What started out as pieces of plywood, wires, nuts and bolts, PVC pipes, and motors have now been transformed into a robot capable of completing the assigned objectives in a hostile ocean environment.
