LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection

Charlie Lindgren's kids work on a new Robotics program

Charlie writes:

Several of my students-to-be were given a unique opportunity to work on a new Robotics program. The three students shown constructed this robotic arm using a ROBIX RC5-6 Robot Communication Set. After several hours of programming and construction they were able to get the arm to pick up a rubber ball from the "tee" shown, and transport it to the plastic cup! On some future mission to Mars a similar activity may be taking place with Martian soil! I bet these three will be there. At the very least they'll be instructing me next year!
