You must: Build a robot that can go as fast as it can over 10 meters. It needs to start when you press the touch sensor.
Tips For students
Tip: Cars with four wheels will go straighter. Especially if both motors turn one axel. 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.
Grading option: The quicker the time, the better the grade. If you are timing each robot, get a copy of this Google Sheet to help you score
