The VEX robots brought together many friends and ideas. I think that I learned about what some of the commities my group members are good at. I was a good experience because we got to learn what we were good at and we got to learn about how others think. I would have liked to see the course instead of programming without know what the course would look like. I learned that a lot of the screws could come unfastend really easily. This is one of the reasons it took a long time to make the robots. Our robot was supposed go through a maze pushing or some how getting PVC pipes to the other end of the maze. Overall, I had a lot of fun making this robot.

Using VEX was kind of intimidating at first. When we got all of the materiels we needed, the first thing that I saw was the huge binder filled with information ranging from how to assemble the actual robot, to how to programm it. The robot itself was just a jumble of parts that somehow had to come together to make a functioning robot that could pick up PVC pipes. I later discovered that it was not as hard as it seemed. We all worked together, and soon enough, we had a functioning robot that could drive around (sometimes into the occasional chair) All in all, it gave me a pretty good idea of what building the actual robot could be like.
