Mythical Machines Camp

12 06 2008

Start your engines!  Today the robotics campers turned their LEGO NXT
robots into racing chariots.  We learned that chariot racing was a
popular sport for the ancient Greeks.  The campers built their own
chariots, and some even thought up original designs to use!  

We learned how the robots’ motors work, as well as how to drive them.  Our original
challenge was to program the robot chariot to drive in a circle.  But
many of our campers got creative with their driving, as you can see in
the video clip.
