One reason to learn to code even if you don't plan to be a programmer is that it will look good on your resume. It's also a good way of exercising critical thinking in your brain. You can also build a website from coding if you know how to use it in the correct way. My partner and I had a difficult time trying to figure out how we were going to tackle this figure eight. The logic statement we used to find out the way we wanted our car to go was to literally walk around the “obstacle course”. The commands we used to create the figure eight were Go, Steering, and Delay. Go was for how fast we wanted our car to go. We originally chose 50 cc so we had to the numbers 400,400. The command Steering was for which direction we wanted the direction of the car to go. Our choices were either straight, left, right, or reverse. My partner and I decided to use all of them except reverse. The way I felt about the process of trial and error was complete frustration. I had the hardest time trying to get the right second in the delay or just trying to find where the problem was. In the end, we did not succeed, for we had only made 1.25 of a figure eight.
