  1. The main problem with this activity was the location of the touch sensor. Many had it in a place where it would not hit anything, so the students were told to move the sensor so that it the car ran into something, the sensor would be pressed. Some groups spent a lot of time attaching the sensor to the car and not a lot of time programming. Other groups were stil building their car so that it could run. Only a couple of groups actually got to the intended activity. This acted as more of an interim activity while all the groups got caught up so that the next week's activity could be done by all of the students.
