Lego Mindstorm with St Peters Farnworth.
Today we had the pleasure of welcoming St Peter’s Farnworth to Bolton Schools ICT. What is it with St Peter’s, last year they stopped off at BSTC, this year one of the mini busses wouldn’t start!
So we started the session focusing our computational minds using the ALEX app to program the robot to move across arrange of floor design.
Once our robots were built, Mr Mills gave us a brief overview of the Mindstorm programming software, let the challenges begin.
Challenge one – to program the robot using the line sensor down attachment to sense the black line, once that works to then pause , reverse and change directions … oh did we mention we want it to move continuously !
Challenge two – so as well as looking for the black line by using the ultrasonic sensor, when it senses an object in front of it, to pause, reverse and change directions don’t forget we want it to move continuously !
