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 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 material, specific to certain kits, is available as attachments.
