1. ## Measuring the temperature of water

Use a temperature sensor, to measure the temperature of 3 different water sources. Gather data points every second for 25 seconds from each sample for analysis.

2. ## Tunnel vision

Design and construct a car and program it to drive through a tunnel, automatically turn on its headlights when it enters the tunnel, and turning them off when it gets to the other side.       Tip: What kind of sensor would be suitable for detecting when the robot...

3. ## Light sensor scavenger hunt

How can you determine the light conditions in different parts of a room? Can you find light sensor readings in the range of 0-30? 60-90? 90-100? Can you draw conclusions and make generalizations about light intensity in the room?

4. ## Basic line follower

How can you design and program a robot to follow a line?    Resources Line Follower lesson plan – NXT + ROBOLAB / NXT-G (PDF)

5. ## Random motion

The code will run Motor A in a random direction (via a Random-Comparison Block combination), at a random speed, for a random amount of time. The motor speeds will fall between 0-100 and the time will fall between 0-3 seconds. Resources Random Motion.rbt (ZIP)

6. ## RCX quick guide

Building a sturdy structure The keys to building a sturdy structure are as follows: 1. Use interconnecting bricks. When you interconnect your bricks, the structure will not fall apart when you move it. 2.  Flick Test: Test the durability of your structure with a simple flick of your finger. If...

7. ## Professional development for Physics teachers

Attention physics teachers! On August 13th-14th at Tufts University’s Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) in Boston, there will be a free two-day professional development workshop for physics teachers on using InterLACE (Interactive Learning and Collaboration Environment), an innovative web-based tool-kit to facilitate collaborative inquiry activities in the classroom....

8. ## Light theremin

In this activity, use an NXT brick equipped with two light sensors to emulate a theremin. One sensor will change pitch as the amount of light sensed changes, and the other sensor will change volume as the amount of light sensed changes. The theremin is meant to be controlled with the...
