Answered: Parts in CORTEX package

In the CORTEX package there are five wires about two inches long with red insulation and right angle bends on the ends. There is also a small disc of Velcro.

They are not on any BEST approval list, so it appears that they can’t be used on a BEST robot.

What are they for?

These are jumper wires for use with the Cortex Microcontroller and it’s preprogramming.
