    Here at Illiana Christian we are starting a new course in robotics with VEX materials. Anyone else use the same? Anyone else teaching a course using VEX?

    Our team is small but committed. We’ve started playing around with some VEX components and are currently working on assembling a simple lifting arm.

    Will we be seeing any of you next Tuesday at Prairie State?
