Took our LEGO® Robotics class and want more? And more of a challenge? Or are you in 4th or 5th grade, ready to launch into robotics with no previous experience? Are you in 4th or 5th grade, ready to launch into robotics with no previous experience?
This class is for you. In Robo Challenge I, instead of working with step-by-step building directions and sample programs, we’ll start each class with a programming challenge, set by our instructors. After meeting that challenge, we’ll use LEGO® robotics kits to design bots to go with our programs.
Bots we built include factory bots (forklifts) that could drive up to a target, stop before crashing into it and then back up; all sorts of cars and amusement rides like the double-cam horse rocker on the left. One of our favorite challenges: build a bot that can trap one of our Hexbug Nanos.
How would you do that? With a trap door? A closing gate? What robotic device would trigger your trap? A motion sensor? A tilt sensor? How would you program your machine, and why?
We provide for use during class: one LEGO® robotics kit and one netbook for each pair of students, and all ancillary equipment including Hexbug Nanos.
The Great Adventure Lab, formerly known as Adventures with Robots. Same company. Same management. New name to fit our growing curriculum!
