Trench Bots Week 3

This past Thursday we met again to continue learning and working on our Trench Bot designs.meetingFirst, we began with an educational physics lesson. lessonJack taught us all about Newton’€™s Three Laws of Motion, followed by learning about Free Body Diagrams and some simple equations. Afterwards, we had a small quiz to test out what we learned.
We learned about how to program our robots today!  Kevin led a slide show about about how to make functions and loops.  We also learned more about the robots that we’re going to be working with.  We learned how to use new programming skills to make our Arduinos blink a workNext we worked with our groups to figure out what components we would need to order, and to finalize our designs.  Note:  the order form is online on the resources page.mentoringOur groups are having a good time learning together, and working with our mentors.  There are thumbs up all around!
