Today we began working on the water and wind turbines and worked on finishing the CAD design for the remaining modules. We epoxy coated the water turbine in order to waterproof it. The turbine still needs to be sanded and painted at the next meeting. Additionally, we tested the wind turbine we had 3D printed. Unfortunately, this design did not work well. We will need to design and print a new wind turbine design. It also became clear that we will need to make the modules larger than originally planned.
