This LEGO Mindstorms robot is strange. Can you guess what is strange about it?... The motors placed in a reverse direction. One of the motors is facing "forward" while the other is facing "backwards". This means that if you make the robot move forward with a Tank Block in the EV3-G software it will just rotate. What you have to do to make the robot move forward is to make one of the motors rotate forward and the other rotate backwards.
The goal of this robot is to teach students that the motors could be placed in many different ways. It is not always the case that the two motors are in one direction. Also, it is quite fun.
