Alien Encounter

January 19, 2011

Today is the first of the Alien Encounters. They will build robots and program them in RoboLab.

They use the green boxes and the other part of the class will use the red.  Later they will switch.

The plan is in the book and instructions are in the constructapedia.

There are 3 robots, computers, and teams.

Program to go forward.

Goes backwards                                Goes correctly

The goal is to go forward and then turn right.

The programs are written on the computer and sent through the IR to the RCX.


The other half of the class is making roller conveyors.

This program did work.

It takes a long time to install the firmware.
