Robotics Boys At Work

October 11, 2009

The boys have secured a place to build their practice set and begin work on programming the robot.

Over the course of the next few weeks, the Lego obstacles will be completed, and the boys will have to begin working on building the actual robot and programming it to accomplish several tasks.

Each of the tasks--going under the bridge, maneuvering around table elements, parking between two barriers without knocking them over, etc.--will earn them points toward their total score.

They'll also have to do a research project and presentation as part of the competition. Guess who has volunteered to help the boys out with this?

Competition will be December 12th this year. We've got a long way to go, but I think they'll be up for it when the time comes!


  1. I can see the concentration on their faces...LOL very cute

  2. We have a course like this here too! So cool!

  3. Cool project! My husband & son are into robots, too.
