Update for Oct. 21st meeting

This week we’re finishing up our Robots for our first competition. The object of this project is to build a Robot that will travel away from you when a laser pointer is targeted on the light sensor. When the laser slips or is off the Robot will come towards you. The Robot that ravels the distance the fastest wins. We’ll also have a winner for the most original Robot to be picked by you guys. Our Robot Race will be held on Tuesday the 28th.
The basic program, set into all the Robots, is shown below:
