Program a Robot

5 11 2010

The Museum runs an after school program where students build and program robots. You can learn about programing at home by playing this challenging and fun game online.  Program a robot to jump over  traps of certain colors or shapes using is/ is not commands. Do not worry if you do not get it at first, you will get a chance to try again.

We work with LEGO’s NXT Mindstorm robots and software to program sensors and motors in order to solve challenges. Once the robots are programmed, they can navigate mazes, “see” the difference between light and dark colors, “hear” noises, and much more.

We also offer robotics camps over the summer – registration will start in early 2011.
