LIVE FROM MARS: Educators Classroom Connection
Gates Intermediate School
Charlie Lindgren's kids work on a new Robotics program
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!
