For our project, we will be creating a robot that can pick up trash underwater. We will be creating and testing three different claws, to see which one is the most effective. Pollution is a huge problem in our oceans, and we want to help lessen that amount of trash. We realized that this problem is too big for humans to do by themselves, so they need mechanical help. We were inspired by this and a sea turtle named Peanut. Peanut was trapped in a six pack ring for a long period of his life. As he got older, his shell grew, but he did not. This prevented him from being able to breathe normally. Luckily, someone found Peanut and realized he was not ok. Peanut was rescued, and thankfully he is still alive today. This is a perfect example of what we want to prevent from happening. Therefore we will be creating a robot, and testing different claws, to see which one will be the most effective in picking up trash underwater.
