VEX Robotics Programming

It looks tough, but it really ain’t!

In order for the robot to move and complete its goals the robot needs to be sent some instructions, here are a few things to remember:

  1. Expect for your program to fail, and fail, and fail some more — that’s totally normal!

  2. Patience is needed, you will eventually be successful

  3. Computers/robots are finicky they listen to exactly what you tell them, but sometimes the directions you give your robot is not what you imagined, it’s okay, you will be successful!
