Lego Robotics R2D2 Builders!
Class Fees: $235 or $215 if taking 2 or more classes
Mat Fees: $30
Two of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars universe are the droids, R2-D2 and his ever-complaining companion, C-3P0. In this class we will create our very own version of R2-D2, using Lego Robotics to motorize and bring this droid to life! It will take us a few class periods to complete our droid, and then the rest of the class will be spent programming the NXT robots. Our droids will go through the mazes, battle, and learn to do numerous other challenges! This class incorporates engineering, programming, math, art and design as kids build their own droid to keep, and learn design principles to enable their droid to move along with robotics engineering controlling all of its movements. No prior knowledge of Lego Mindstorm programming is required. If you already have had an introduction to this, take it further by challenging your droid to move just like it does in the movies! If programming is new to you, that's no problem at all! You'll learn the basics and then advance as you decide what challenges you want your droid to accomplish. Have fun!
