Rules FOR STUDENTS
You must use: -1 NXT or EV brick -3 motors
You must: Build a robot that can pop another robot's balloon, before yours gets popped!
Tips For students
Tip: Cars with four wheels will go straighter, but leave tyres off two wheels so it still turns. Tip: Cars that use gears will go faster. A big gear on the motor and a small gear on the wheel will make the wheel turn faster. To use gears, the wheel's axel can't go through the motor's hole.
