For the past week, I have had to franticly build a robot to compete in a Vex robotics competition. As in, drive to school and work for about 7 hours without stopping. In the holidays.

The robot had to lift cubes up and put them in various triangular prisms, getting bonus points for various silly things like sitting on a raised platform at the end of a match. Some of the robots were quite complex, and had interesting mechanisms for picking up the cubes. We won two of five games, which was nice.

For some reason, one team managed to score 125 points – there being a maximum of 50 points from scoring, and maximum 40 bonus points. Right.
