Welcome back everyone! I'm sure many of you guys have started school, with many people in colder regions starting shortly. Stay smart, and you guys are going to do great! I have a question for you guys, with school starting, what is your favorite subject? Is it computer science? Orchestra? Biology? I want to know! While you guys are deciding what your favorite subject is, let's take a look at this week's repls!

My favorite subject in school is probably engineering (that's a subject, right?). I am enrolled in "Principles of Engineering" and we get to build a lot of robots and design things... cool things. It follows the PLTW curriculum, and it's even dual credit this year. ^w^

@Zavexeon That sounds like a ton of fun! Maybe you can use repl.it to control your robots!

@21natzil Do you guys really want repl.it to end up becoming Skynet?

Anyways, we actually use Vex Coding Studio. The bots are programmed in C++ with some additional built-in functions. :)

@Zavexeon Well, I don't know about you, but a a repl.it skynet does sound impressive 😉
