It’s a Wrap!

20 06 2008

Friday was our very last day of Mythical Machines Robotics class.  The
girls learned a lot about programming, designing and building, teamwork,
and creative thinking.  On Friday they got to show off all they had
learned by designing their own individual projects!  Some used a list of
suggestions from the teachers, while others thought up projects
completely on their own.  We had crazy taxi-ride robots, carnival rides,
food-detecting robots, street-cleaning robots, Las Vegas card-dealing
robots, waltzing robots, and a robot that could snag and reel up a
priceless diamond that a goddess had dropped into a well! The girls got
to show their work to visitors at the Girl Scouts center as well as some
parents.

We had a great time at Mythical Machines robotics camp!  For those of
you interested in the robots we used, you can check out Lego Mindstorms http://mindstorms.lego.com  online.  Also, if you’re interested in
the Greek myths we learned about, check out Rick Riordan’s books at
rickriordan.com, which set Greek myths in present-day New York.  The
girls all give those books two thumbs up!
