NXT programming and Smart Moves
  • Ideal:
    • Every pair of students has a computer and kit
    • You will have a (working) Smartboard to teach Mindstorms
  • Reality:
    • Not so much – You do the best you can with what you have and flexibility is key
    • Have you kids gather around your laptop

  • The first few meetings:
    • Group games
    • Building with the Constructopedia
    • Basic programming exercises like…

D

Follow the line

A to B to C to D and then back home to A

*Great Math Extension:

C = D * π

or

C = 2 r π or……

The rotational sensor can

measure distance via rotations

**This will help your students increase their efficiency.

help i don t know anything
Help, I don’t know anything!!!
  • Take a kit home and build the task bot
  • Play with the software, yes play with it!!
  • For your kids to understand Mindstorms, you need to have a proficient understanding yourself!
  • Which palette is right for you? Common, custom, or
the game
The Game
  • Extremely precise movements
  • You need to incorporate your Ultrasonic and Light sensors to help guide the robot
