Lego - Robosports
Workshop Programme ­ Teachers' Notes
Activities after the visit
Use the worksheets to reinforce the importance of giving precise instructions
within computer control.
Tasks through direct commands:
­ The pupils work in pairs: one is a controller, the other the robot.
­ The controller must command the robot to carry out a task such as pick up a
book, walk round a table and place the book an a shelf or perform a silly walk
or dance.
­ The robot can only react to specific instructions from the controller. To say
"walk" is not enough. The instruction needs to be precise, such as: "Lift a leg.
Move leg forward and put it down on the floor 15cm in front. Shift body weight
onto left leg and repeat action with right leg."
Robosports Workshop
A 45-minute workshop challenges pupils to build a robot using the RCX programmable
micro-computer. They investigate how different strategies affect the performance
of robots within a Robosports micro-environment and enjoy participating in a robot
sporting competition.
