What to Expect at Robot Plus
Robots need stimulation. This game uses a laser pointer to talk to the robot. Hit the target and the robot goes forward. A steady hand is needed to keep the pointer focused all the way to the finish line. Hold on, why is my robot going backward? Is someone else talking to my robot? Strategy and stamina are needed to win this game.
Robots are really good at following directions. A common robotic challenge is a line follower. Does your robot follow lines fast or slow? Will it fall off the line and get lost? There are lots of ways to improve accuracy and speed. Can you draw a line that your robot follows best?
Mindstorms NXT has a built in blue tooth wireless radio. Pair the radio with a transmitter and the robot becomes remote control! Now the robot is your slave! But wait there’s more. Remember the line follower? Can you follow the line better with remote control, or will the robot do best on its own? You might be surprised!
You’ve probably heard of a rat race, or a mouse in a maze. Robots do it too. We will program them to do the maze by themselves, but then see if radio control can speed it up?
Head to head Robots duke it out in the ring. This is a classic robot club battle. We will wish there was more time for this one! Most robot camp construction is really simple. This activity needs strong physical joints and well thought program strategy. We will just get a taste of greatness…
Did you ever run the “All camp relay” at Young Teen Camp? Robots love camp relays. You might be surprised to know they play carpet ball and shoot archery? Our Camp Grand Challenge will get robots geared up and fitted for speed and endurance to take on the toughest robot tasks Sky Lodge has ever seen! This activity is based on Lego League challenges, so “Gracious Professionalism” is our guide. You won’t want to miss it!
