Agenda

  • Welcome and Setup
  • Get a Little Help from tryscience.org
  • Build an “A-Mazing” Robot
    • Create Two Teams
    • Build a Robot
    • Program a Robot
    • Create a Layout Maze and Test a Robot
    • Create a Team Presentation
slide3

About A-Mazing Robots

Program your robot to travel around a maze to find a toxic waste location, and then carry the waste to a disposal location using as few simple commands as possible.

Let’s have some fun!

slide4

What is computer programming?

  • …Creating a sequence of instructions (steps) that a computer can interpret (understand) and execute (take action) to achieve a desired operation (goal).
  • A computer program may have many steps linked in sequence in one single set of instructions.

An Engineering and Technology Design Adventure…

An “actual” A-Mazing Robot!

slide8

Forming Teams...

  • Create two Teams (Give Your Team Names).
  • Each team will build a robot, write a computer program, and create a layout maze for the robot to find and dispose of “toxic waste" using logical thinking and imagination.
  • Each team will create a PowerPoint Presentation and present for 3 - 7 minutes. “All team members must contribute verbally.”
slide9

Forming Teams...

  • Each Team will have Sub-Teams:
  • Hardware Engineering Team - Mechanical Engineers
  • Software Engineering Team - Programmers
  • Industrial Engineering Team - Layout and Testing
  • Marketing & Communications Team - Presentation
slide10

Forming Teams...

Hardware Engineering Team - Responsible for the parts, assembly, and electrical systems.

  • Software Engineering Team -Responsible for programming the robot to layout requirements.
  • Industrial Engineering Team - Responsible for constructing the layout maze and testing the product.
slide11

Forming Teams...

Marketing & Communications Team - Responsible for creating the PowerPoint Presentation and organizing the presenters.

Create a Layout Maze

  • …Create a 5 x 5 matrix on a flat surface using sheets

of paper or masking tape

  • Use Layout Matrix Template as an example
  • Use paper or other objects to represent “toxic waste”

and “trash”

ROBOLAB Software

  • …ROBOLAB is a graphical programming environment that controls your robot.
  • PILOT levels - graphical with a single chain of commands.
  • INVENTOR levels - more flexibile with complex operations to control the robot (i.e., conditional branches and subroutines).

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Things that can affect robot performance: battery voltage, motors, friction between the tires and maze materials
  • Overcome problems by thinking and acting like an engineer
  • Isolate and solve each problem one at a time to achieve success
slide27

Team Presentation

  • Team Members
  • Team Objectives
  • Robot Performance
  • Lessons Learned
  • Project Evaluation
