Alien Encounter

January 19, 2011
Today is the first of the Alien Encounters. The students will build robots and program them in RoboLab.

There are 4 robots, computers, and teams.
Serial IR

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

The robots are programed in RoboLab on the computers
and the programs are uploaded to the RCX through Infrared tower.

One find is that to go forward the wires will need to go the opposite way of the instructions.
Another not so fun piece of information is that is touchy to change batteries.

The goal is to go forward and then turn right.

4 working in 50 minutes!
