Get Excited About Robotics – Journal Entries
Journalist: Layce D Team Name: Robo 101
Today’s assignment is to build the robot, make the program for it, and test it on a taped P on the ground to get a hang of it. Right now my team is building the robot. You start off by adding parts to a motor, then you build another motor section and then you connect them together. Now you have the body. Then you will connect the brick (or brain) to the motors. You have to connect the wheels to the motors. The programmers are setting up the program so they can start working. I’m just sitting here writing it all down. Now the programmers are in the program and are working on it. We haven’t succeeded in making the robot move through the P but I sure we are going to get it done!
Journalist: Josefina P Team Name: Walle-Bots
Today we are trying to make the bot go around the P. I wonder if they will make it go around. The engineers are building the robots and the team leaders are measuring the P. The programmers are programming so the robot can walk. Building looks so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so fun I wish I could build with my team but I wanted to be a journalist. I wonder if we are going to work with the camera today. The kit has a little homie guy and wheels and other Lego stuff. My team is still building the bot and my leader is telling them to hurry because she is already done with the programming. I really like cameras and taking pictures. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Good I am so excited because we are going to put our story on the computer. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have a little obstacle course where we have to make the robot not touch the tape. We have to keep it in the lines while we make go right three times and then we have to make it go straight four times!!!It is really interesting to watch the programmers do their thing and it is also very interesting to watch the engineers build the awesome robots. But I very much like my job of being a journalist!!!!
I’ve got to take pictures! BYE!!!!!
Journalist: Breanna G Team Name: BCIJ
Today we are programming our team’s robot and building the robot so the robot can go through the obstacle course. We are halfway done. Then we can test the robot through the obstacle course. We are also measuring the obstacle course so the robot will not go out of the lines. The robot can not touch the tape. We were having trouble building the robot, but we got some help from Mrs. Hale. Now we have all the pieces so now we can finish the robot.
