A few days ago I posted about the week long Mayan Adventure project for kids. Christine has completed it and has posted plenty of writeups and pictures, including images of all the teams' versions of the robots used to complete the 5 challenges.
I am very impressed with the robots these kids created. Each day they listened to part of the storyline and then went about brainstorming how best to solve that day's challenge. The 3-dimensional aspect of it, complete with "stones" and Mayan glyphs, made it very entertaining, too.
I appreciate Christine keeping us informed on the project and I really hope the kids had a lot of fun. If you are a teacher or coach and are considering something like this, drop over to Christine's site for some ideas. And if you do a project based on The Mayan Adventure, please do email me and let me know.
