Hartwick class to harness robot power


“People look forward to it,’’ she said. “Last year, it was standing room only.’’

Using LEGO NXT-G kits, students build and program robots of increasing complexity throughout the course, beginning on the first day, a media release from Hartwick said.

Students have worked in teams of two to build and program several different robots including a card reader with a lock box, an M&M sorter and a robot that plays the children’s game of rock-paper-scissors.

The LEGO NXT-G robots have sensors for sound, light, touch and distance plus three motors for movement, the release said. Students build and program robots to perform, then modify them to handle more sophisticated problems and tasks.

As a final project, students will build and program a robot, something they have designed or from a plan, the release said.
