Well pit, here's the story. I have to choose between two school trips to go on seeing as they are both in the same week. One is for a competition for the robotics team at my school(we build it, then I, along with someone else drive it in a game of some sort.) and the other is a band trip for some kind of competition(I play the trumpetzorz). The robotics trip is for 5 days(I think Wednesday-Sunday) and the Band trip is only 3 days Friday-Sunday. If I do not go on the robotics trip, I cannot drive for two other trips that they have and I'm tempted by the fact that the band trip will be more fun seeing as they go to Bush Gardens for a day.(A theme park in Virginia)

This also got me thinking. This are the two things I am interested in majoring in when I go to college. If anyone could share some insight on the two subjects mainly Engineering/Computer Science or Technology in Music it would be greatly appreciated.

robotics dude...
My pedalboard is worth more than my car, but that doesn't say much for either.

well i'm an enigneering major and i'll tell you if thats what you wanna major in you better be good with calculus and physics.

robots are cooler though. A theme park would be fun but then you'll miss out on all the other trips and you'll regret it later. Also, Robots are cooler then band.

lol.
it's actually Busch Gardens, btw.


TS, the fact that the Robotics trip leads to 2 more should weigh fairly heavily.

Robotics. It's awesome and if you want to be an engineer, robotics will most likely play a part in your career.

It's also a lot of fun. I had a robot competition on Wednesday, my group got second. It just had to follow a line and it also had to navigate around a square track with bumper switches.

If 2 days of robots are as much fun as 1 day of roller coasters... and 1 day of no roller coasters with the band is the same amount of fun as 1 day of robots.....

2 days of robots = roller coaster

1 day of robots = 1 day of band

(2 days of robots) + (2 days of robots) = (Roller coaster) + (2 days of band)

4 days of robots = band

5 days of robots > band

If I was correct in assuming that 1 day of robots is the same amount of fun as 1 day of band, and that the roller coaster day of band was as much fun as two days of robots, the robots will be more fun.

You may have just single handedly convinced me to go on the robotics trip. Thank you for everyone else's input. and btw, that picture of the robot trumpeter made me lol and I'll be showing it to my friends as soon as i get the chance.
