During Tobin’s three day absence, genius hour became the main task of the Helpdesk team. The three days allowed us to put full focus onto our projects. The first day was occupied by 3D printing a 19/50th rounded, scale model of our loop. This model also allowed us to confirm previous counts and measurements. We miscounted the total number of magnets previously, and we now need at least 139, not 137.
Day two was used to continue research. We looked into material acquisition and attempted to figure out how to forge the superconductor. Futurescience has been an incredibly useful resource to our project. From it, we have figured out most of what we need to do, we just need to do the work and obtain the materials.
The third day of Tobin's absence, Jocelyn and I were needed to update the PFC website and fix info on the homepage, so my progress on genius hour that day was majorly stunted. Garrett was also occupied, so Richard continued the research by himself.
