I  started my robot when I was about 12 years old. I was inspired by shows  such as Robot Wars.  However, I did not know much about how to build a robot, plus I  lacked  a welder. My first successfully running robot was built around fifth or sixth grade, but there was not enough room for my batteries. =( I then built a much taller robot. I didn't. however,  fully understand the power of a tape measure, and the drive chain kept popping out. A couple of versions later, I got a welder, and then made my next somewhat successful robot. Unfortunately it was too top heavy, and the tracks that were installed were too short, so I decided to  design what is now my current version. It has six wheels, and each side can pivot independently of each other.
