    GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, so today we opened our white box, and there was a little chart that we're supposed to be filling in but actually never have, and the other team (MSSN) had ticked everything off. The robot's wheels worked again, but this was intermittent until we found out that it was the axel that would detach. So, we just added a little gray holder so that it would keep in place. Now it was time to focus on the program. It was a bit tricky at first until we finally figured out which Pilot to use (3). Everything worked!! We even have photographic evidence of it because Tala took a video with her camera, click here to visit her wiki.
    Anyway, so we found the pilot, programmed it to go at speed 5 from motors A & C, until the push sensor was pushed and the robot went backwards (the motors A & C went in the opposite direction they went before), and the robot kept going down and down, and off the platform and still backwards --here comes the cool bit-- and stopped when it reached the black line, proving that we DO know how to use a light sensor! :D
    GO TO THIS PAGE TO SEE THE VIDEO ON TEACHER TUBE. For some reason, it won't upload properly, so never mind. Just watch it on the below link. This video has nothing really to do with our final challenge trial, it was just one that worked till the top, but the push sensor didn't work, so it ended up really bad. Anyway, it shows that we actually built something, so it's just fine.

    Okay, this is our last week, and we really have to work hard on this! Today we spent most of the time building our robot, and getting some of the programming to work. Unfortunately, for some (for now) unknown reason, the tractor wheels with the huge rubber thing around them didn't spin. So basically, it spun and spun until we turned it off. Great, eh? Hope our lucks better next time! (Although you can't really blame it all on luck, although I suppose most of it is based on probability). Anyhow, we had a good lesson. :)

    Hey everybody, I will be posting different things on it, as we go along. I will kinda have a theme every semester. This one is the start-off one. I hope you have fun on my wiki, as I love it when people visit it, and tell me how much they liked it at school!
    Hello everybody!
    Welcome to my wiki!
    My name is Simone, and I like reading. I like mystery, sci-fi, and hist. fiction books. Non fiction I don't really like.
    Hope to see you around soon!!!
