When I did this with my students, the fastest time we got over a 4m course was 2.52 seconds.

I live in Tasmania, Australia, and teach Computer Science and Computing (Robotics + Game Design) at Claremont College. I also teach students from around Tasmania through my online robotics class, SmartBots. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting for little plastic boxes ("geocaching") and playing board games.
