Follow the Line, workshop
Last Tuesday I gave a workshop at a group of 15 7-9 year olds at the school Wittering.nl. The kids already participated in the FLL and won places for the country final on February the 6th. The asked if I could help them in doing more with sensors, in their FLL robot.
So we did a workshop in building and programing the 5 minute robot from NXTprograms.com.
we also added an Ultrasonic sensor to detect the end of the line (actually the wall of the playing field) in the Smartmove mission.
It was great fun and all groups build and programmed a good working robot, with the new color sensor, some even adapted the smooth line follow program to an old style lightsensor.
