The NXT Light Sensor

The idea of this challenge is to have students set up several light sensors to log data over time. After the setup is complete, run the programs, turn off the lights in the room, and have the students leave. Walk around the room near the different sensors with a flashlight. After the data acquisition is done and the students return, see if they can work together with their data to determine the path that the “Tomb raider” took around the room with his or her flashlight.
