    LAS!!!!

    Thanks!!

    Unfortunately, as I unloaded the robot into my classroom, I realized what a mess was left behind. All of the supplies and tools, but tie wraps, pieces of wire, etc., screws, bolts, you name it were spread out in my classroom.

    I had 90 minutes to get this mess cleaned up and swept, everything put away, and I promise you that it took all of that time.

    As I looked at the final robot, I noticed that the students decided to do some halloween decorations, using a sharpie!

    Nope, no pictures until all of that gets cleaned up.

    I am excited that we get to keep the brain. We can make the controls easier and the students can learn about c-language programming.

    So much to do, but I am pleased that we did what we did. It was a LOT!

    It looks like you ignited the kids to learn more about robotics Ann! May be we will see them in the future guiding a remote robot on a planetary exploration mission.

    Thanks, ALL!

    No more pictures, Abby. Not yet! It seems that my body was waiting for the competition to get over to start giving me fits. I have a virus of some sort/cold of some sort. I am taking medicine, hoping that the symptoms will go away. I'm too far behind at school to get any further behind.

    Right now, I'm terribly far behind on sleep. Thankfully, my students are being kind and better than usual. They know that I am sick, but still trying to help them.

    More pictures when I get well...
