How I built it
We used arduino's to bulid it and we used sketch (arduino software) to program it.
Challenges I ran into
Getting the sensor to sense light properly as well as getting the led to respond to the sensor and calibrating the sensor to the right sensitvity.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We overcame all our challenges and did it with amazing teamwork.
