The year is done for the seniors, so this will most likely be our last blog... Today were attempting to complete the tetra challenge before grades go in so hopefully everything goes well. It has been a great year in engineering and we hope the best for all future years to come.

With the quarter closing for us seniors we finally swallowed our pride and went to Mr. Martin for help with programming our arm. So with great pleasure i inform you that the robot & arm are both up and running/ fully functional.This was a great relief for our team, but we still need to buckle down and finish blogs as well as the tetra challenge.

As this week finishes we realize that this arm may be way out of the league for anyone in our group to program or even Jacob, so if we can not get this roadblock figured out soon we might have to go for broke and try to have Mr. Martin intervene with some advice. Hopefully it will not have to come to this seeing how the plug has been independent up to this point.

The quarter is slowly coming to an end, and we are rushing to try and figure out why our arm has not yet worked well enough to complete the tetrahedron challenge, we have tried almost everything we can to fix the problem. Might have to call in the (Jacob) soon and get an extra set of eyes on this arm.

Going into our tetra challenge, we are still trying to program the arm which is being difficult because of the outdated software, and our lack of knowledge with programming arms. On a positive note we have built a solid yet agile tetrahedron for the upcoming challenge so maybe that will give us the competitive edge we need.

Programming has finally show some improvement and with the arm pre-made Jason is attaching it to the bot for the next challenge. Tetra challenge is up next, where we must use the arm to pick up the tetra in a specific time.
