I'm in 7th grade and on team 7700P in VEX robotics.

I can design things in CAD and I also enjoy reading. 

This is a picture of team 7700P's robot from Rolling Robots. I'm on the team and the robot is currently putting a ball in a tower. 

This is the Rolling Robots logo.

This is an automatic turtle feeder that'll feed my turtle every morning. It will need to have a timer connected to a motor which will only spin 90 degrees every day. It'll probably need to be connected to a battery pack. The motor will be connected to a red cross that will spin in a cup. Another cup will fit on top of the first cup that the spinner is in. Turtle food will but put in the top cup and there will be a hole in the top cup, dropping food into one of the four sections of the cross. The section will fill up with food and I'll probably add a button to manually control the dispensing. When I press that button, the cross will turn 90 degrees and the food in one section of the cross will fall out a hole in the bottom of the bottom cup. There will most likely be a ramp that the food will slide down straight into the turtle tank. I don't know why I'm doing this. I could probably buy an automatic turtle feeder at PetSmart for 10 bucks and not waste all this effort. 

This is a picture of it without the spinner inside of it.
