The LEGO Mindstorms NXT is a programmable robotics kit which can be used to create many different robots which can complete a variety of tasks. During these workshops, you get to build your own LEGO Mindstorms robots, and then you can program them to complete a series of tasks.
These workshops give an overview of robotics hardware and programming constructs, as well as introducing a free iPad application called Cargobot to help students learn about sequential instructions.
During this workshop the groups will be introduced to the NXT kits to create a bowling robot.
For this 3-day bootcamp, the robotics kits will be used for attendees to work like mechanical engineers and build a robot that checks the integrity of a zip-wire, sending GPS signals when problem areas along the wires are located.
