Extreme Robotics: Battlebots Get ready to take ultimate control with NXT LEGO® robotics projects! Using the NXT Intelligent Brick from LEGO®, servo motors, advanced ultrasonic, touch and light sensors, and specialized LEGO® Technic engineering components, we will build extreme robots and overcome challenges. Working in small teams, students will control the robots with NXT programs. Students will then be challenged to morph their projects into better, stronger or faster robots by experimenting and modifying the programs. Possible competitive robots include tug-o-war bots, hammer-bot, a claw-striker, and sumo-bot. Please bring a drink and snack daily.
