Robotics: Star Wars Droid Builder (Grades 1-5)
Bring Star Wars-inspired inventions to life with the Star Wars LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Developer Kit. We will start with a simple droid mechanism, then move on to more ambitious droids that move and walk. This modular building system allows students to build using subassemblies, making it easy to create and customize the robotic droids. All these great robotic inventions are powered by the Micro Scout, the smallest LEGO microcomputer, equipped with a light sensor and six robotic programs to control our droid creations. Possible models include Droid Vehicle, Trainer Droids, our version of R2-D2, and more! We will experiment with robotic programs that avoid light, seek light, are controlled by lights, act as alarms, and more. Please bring a drink and nut-free snack daily.
