Emulator

 The Raspberry Pi project isn't going as planed.We have tried multiple different screens and they all failed.Nothing is working.It seems all the screens are broken or something but they just wont load the Raspberry Pi format.So waht we are plaining on doing is just using a raspberry pi and seting it up to a monitor and we are gonna make a Raspberry Pi game Emulator.

GBA

This weak we have bean figuring out how we are going to get the GBA which is just a game Emulator. I am going to be hooking up the lcd screen to the Raspberry Pi while Trevor gets the emulator downloaded.But I am also going to have to format the SD Card. I have bean messing around with a different emulator on my iphone.There wasn't much we had to do to get that emulator except for trying to understand a lot of chinese words,but I also had a video to guide me.

The Grant

For these past two weeks we have been trying to figure out how we messed up with our 3D print.We have went down to Mr.Rambach's classroom and to use their 3D printer because ours broke. Mr.Rambach and Mr.Dempsey have been also trying to help us figure out where we went wrong with our prints. We have talked and what me and trevor are gonna do is when we get our supplies we will go back down and see how big we will need our prints.

3D print goes wrong

     

            For this weak we have just realized that we printed everything in the wrong size. So what we did is we went down to the 8th grade room and used there 3D printer.When we got our 3D print back from the 8th grade we realized that there printer prints like 3x bigger.So pretty much we now have to restart are whole 3D print.
