The Vex Robots team have been hard at work over the last few days. Dean and David went to an EMC run session for the programmers on Wednesday afternoon. They got a lot of good tips and learned some new things about how to program the robot. ( we could only bring two people to this session)
The other coders went to the Rubicon in the hope of rebuilding the robot but despite a heroic FOUR hours of building, he is not ready yet.
We have a practice session with EMC in the NEXUS centre in CIT on Friday 1.30 -2.30. EMC have kindly agreed to lend us a robot so that we can at at least have a go in the practice arena with the balls etc. If you can make it, that would be great. One of the mentors will be there from 1.30-2.30 and there will be CoderDojo as usual from 4-6.
There is no problem at all if the coders can’t make it as I appreciate all the difficulties around school. We will take lots of pictures to show everyone. This was the only time slot we had available.
