    pretty talented!!! :D give them monster truck wheels :D
    That'd be awesome!! Unfortunately we power our robots with motorcycle batteries and I think the power needed to turn one of those wheels with our motors even 90 degrees would deplete the batteries in approximately 3.14 seconds.

    Some smart high Schoolers
    Thanks! We do a lot of this stuff by ourselves but we have engineering mentors to help us when we need it. This is actually a worldwide organization that our team is associated with called FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). I predict every high school will have one of these team in at maximum, 7 years.

    Battery depletion: 3.14 milliseconds. :)

    Yeah, we do a lot of community demos to spread the word about what our teams do and how awesome it is, and we hear that from people all the time. We definitely won't be hearing that as much in the near future! I like talking about this so much that I think I probably could write a 10-page, single-spaced, 10pt font, paper about how awesome FIRST and their elementary through high school robotics programs are in five hours.

    Heh, if they were constantly plugged in to a socket they'd short circuit or break from all the torque needed.
    I know you were kidding about the monster truck wheels, but a few teams nationally with crazy rich donations from sponsors (that's how teams are kept running, receiving donations, because they're all non-profit organizations) could actually consider building that kind of robot.

    Just peeking in to see what's going on as i commute to class. Looks like the kids are in charge and are doing a good job. 👍
