Walking with Robots

Following the introductory robotics class a few weeks ago, the children are now ready to examine slightly more complex robots. They went straight on to assemble a scissors-like robot with motors attached to the ends of its two legs. 

Using switches, they then learn to make the robot walk under manual control.

IQ chips are the introduced which the children programmed so that the robot could walk by itself.

Tiger and his team mate were most pleased when they succeeded in getting their robot to walk autonomously, through the correct programming.

Of course, there has got to be a robot race before the end of class!

This post is linked up to several blog hops, where you can see what other homeschoolers have been busy with.
