Build Day 2!!

We decided to use different methods today because the other ones just weren't working... and they actually worked! Instead of working as a whole group, we worked as two pairs. Kathryn and Anna kept on working from the beginning to the end, while Emma and Jakob started at the end and worked backward, and they met in the middle. As of today, we have all of the components built, we just need to connect the last ones. Then we are on to recording! However, there were some failures, as always with these kinds of projects, the lower are enclosed. We have pictures of both successful parts and unsuccessful parts.
