4 Days Left till the District Event at Walt Whitman High School

4 days left and we are starting to get a little nervous.  The installation and testing that was going to take place last night was delayed because the arm was not ready.  So that has been pushed to later today.  On top of that we went to test the new battery cart and only half of the batteries fit that were supposed to, so that will need to be reworked.  And just to make things even more fun the robot cart is behind schedule and really needs to be finished…
