A class at Duke West 2013 TERM 2 taught by Bilal (Sir) and TA Alex (the storyteller). The class consisted of lectures, labs, lab reports (sometimes), lots of BoeBot building, and writing PBasic programs (or using Lee's). According to Sir, EE is the best class at Duke, although Steven may beg to differ.
