A Game of Rounders

January 17, 2017

At the first day of Robotics with LEGO Mindstorms, we had a blast getting to understand what a robot really is and building our first robot.  Everyone got to hook their robot up to a computer, and give their robot some personality with a face and a voice, then make it move by coding!

Robots can be great at playing rounders.  So we programmed them to play, making sounds, and sometimes varying their speed each each turn.  It took a while but kids with fantastic growth mindsets can achieve anything!

Listen to the kids talk about their robots below.
