Happy St. Patrick's Day

My daughter's first grade teacher asked them all to design and build a trap to catch a leprechaun this week. She told them leprechauns are tricky and notorious for ignoring signs and doing whatever they please. My daughter is pictured here with her NXT invention for catching that pesky leprechaun!


Here is a view from behind and to the side of the leprechaun "jail".


Happy St. Patty's Day to one and all!

Hello theNXTstep, Happy St. Patrick's day to all of you!

A cool 'bot built by Laurens from the Mindstorms forums: http://www.freewebs.com/laurens201/bricksorter8527.htm

It uses only the parts from the retail NXT kit and can sort bricks of three different colors. An awesome video, I think you should post it!

Thanks Andy!

Unfortunately the jail didn't work. The leprechaun stole the pot of gold that she left in there - but he did fill it up to the top with candy for her.

He's a sneaky little devil... ;-)
