Nuclear Robotics? It is LOGICALReference ID: P510
Importance of Logic
Logic: defined as the science of reasoning. Applied as the set of instructions to accomplish a task. Implemented as a way to systematically improve the results of the task.
Robot Maze Challenge
A simple maze is a fun challenge - but what can it teach you about the importance of following instructions? Using the Sphero robot, an iPad, a few colored cups and a serious amount of logic you will teach this robot to accomplish the maze.
Necessities for Robot mazeHere are a few things you might need to accomplish the robot maze challenge:
Cooper CutoutTake a look at Cooper Nuclear Power Station!
A Failure to Communicate
Cargo-Bot is an iPad simulation game that challenges even the brightest of minds. The best thing about a digital simulation robot is that you can practice over and over again breaking your machine until you find the right solutions. Fortunately for you - hit reset and the robot is right back waiting for your instructions again.
GIGO Humans vs. Robots
Garbage In Garbage Out - this is what happens when our logic goes wrong. This challenge will utilize two robots and two humans in a challenge to detect bad commands in the sequence to solve a simple yet elusive problem.
Observing the world around it is what sets a robot apart from a toaster. Identify, Figure Out, & Implement a multitude of sensors as you collect data to analyze. In a nuclear power plant, sensors are all around gathering information on things like vibrations, temperature, sounds and radiation to detect even the slightest change in status.
