Time Frame:Unimportant
Work as:Team
Equipment Needs:Substantial
DescriptionThere are enough inexpensive kits and technical expertise that it seems like we could build a robot or two and race them through a maze. If we can only manage one, maybe we could have different teams each do their own programming to see who could traverse the maze faster with the same piece of hardware.
BasicsWe find or create kits which we then bring to camp and assemble, then code to attempt to solve a maze as quickly as possible.
Why is this Fun?Racing and robots are each fun. Combining them would give us the power of two.
Variations:None Submitted
Equipment List:Robot kits and a maze.
