The VEX V5 Speedbot is meant to get you comfortable working with the system as quickly as possible. Now that the build is finished, experiment and see what it can do. Then answer these questions in your engineering notebook.

  1. What types of activities could this Speedbot be used for in the real-world?

  2. If this Speedbot was 5 times larger, how would that change in size revise what the robot is capable of doing? What advantages would there be with a bigger robot?

  3. If this Speedbot was 5 times smaller, how would that change in size revise what the robot is capable of doing? What advantages would there be with a smaller robot?
