Our Programs

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

We’ve just finished testing our programs, and they’re working fine.


Practice, Practice, Practice!

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

Earlier today we practiced running our programs. We don’t want to go into the next round cold. For the next week we will try to practice this more.


More Tweaking

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

The Stent to Artery program hadn’t worked during the competition, so today we tweaked it. We will still be tweaking, of course, but at least we have the gist of it.

We have also been tweaking our presentation, adding such things as alternate usages and clarified wording. Hopefully we can get everything done before the next round in a couple weeks.


Recent Advents

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

For the past two nights, we worked on a couple of our programs. As it turns out, we really needed to work on our Robotic Arm and Medicine Dispenser programs.

We also practiced our presentation and decided to trim and clarify it.
