  25. 25. We’re starting a new project, and I think we have some pretty good ideas!We’re creating a Lego robot to transport a chip into a bowl of salsa.The only thing is, we have to get the chip back out, so that’s a challenge. I think it’s awesome that we get to use our creativity so much, and create machines that you have fun thinking of. Also, getting to see the other group inventions is pretty cool too.
