1. NXT-G examples: Motors

    NXT-G examples: Motors

    These examples (ZIP) demonstrate a range of techniques for working with motors in NXT-G. Drive for time This code turns on Motor A for two seconds, and then turns it off. Similar code can be made by adding motors or changing times. Drive to black line There are many ways to...

  3. LabView examples: Projects

    LabView examples: Projects

    Here are some example projects using LabView. Hand Puppet code LabVIEW for MINDSTORMS code for the LEGO hand puppet. Morse Code This example shows how to turn a user input into a corresponding sequence of sounds. Each letter in the alphabet has its own case structure with morse code sounds....

  4. LabView examples: Programming structures

    LabView examples: Programming structures

    These examples (PDF) demonstrate the use of programming structures in LabVIEW. Acceleration and Case Structure This example shows how to use shift registers and case structures to produce an effect similar to acceleration. If the sensor is pressed, the motors stop, but otherwise power is slowly added to the motors. Basic...

  5. Music box

    Music box

    Design and construct a working music box in which LEGO mini-figures move while a song plays. This lesson is one in a series of introductory lessons that is applicable to all types of robotics kits. The lessons are geared to students in early primary to middle school (depending on the lesson). Additional...

  6. Peak performance

    Peak performance

    Design and develop a car that is capable of traveling across flat surfaces quickly, but can also negotiate a steep ramp. Note: The WeDo version of the car remains tethered to the computer via the USB cable and therefore cannot travel very far.    Tip 1: What gear train yields...

  9. Fan-tastic

    Fan-tastic

    Design and construct a LEGO fan with at least one sensor and program it to run at variable speeds and have a stop/start function. Note: the RCX and NXT versions of the attachments use two touch sensors while the WeDo version uses the tilt sensor.      This lesson is...
