In my travels, I came across the gang from VEX Robotics - and got a personal tour from my new pal Ellie. EMC does a lot with VEX - and sponsors many of these kits to school systems each year. The kids build robots from these kits designed to solve a variety of challenges. It's just awesome.
I put Ellie on the spot and fired up my camera. Apologies for the jittery nature of the vid - Too much capuccino from the Bloggers Lounge!
