To succeed, fail often - like Thomas Edison
We have been trying various methods of solving the missions.  We have completed the Nanotube Strength,(which is a mission where we push a truck onto a platform and raise it) Separate Nanotip mission, (where our robot has to separate two magnets) and the Individual Atom Manipulation, (in which our robot has to knock as many white pegs off of a moving table, without knocking off any reds).  With this completed we are able to successively get 134 points, although we sometimes got lucky and received 144 points.

IMG_3844.JPGFor the last two days Amy and I have been working hard to complete a fourth mission.  I've felt rather like Thomas Edison inventing the light bulb, we've constantly been coming up with, building, trying, and discarding new ideas.  Unfortunately one of our attempts messed up some of our other programs and tomorrow we will have to fix it so that we can continue our experiments.

I hope that we will be able to finish our robot and presentation within the three-week deadline we have until our first competition.
