Lego NXT2.0 Mindstorms prototypes

In my last blog post I wrote about the EV3 Mindstorms creations that Year 7 students built (and Year 11 students programmed). This blog post will display some of the NXT2.0 Mindstorms prototypes that Year 11 & 12 students created.

Their task: create a NXT2.0 prototype that relates to a real-world robotic solution.

    Yes, year 11 & 12 students had a short robotics unit with a minor project. Submission documentation and videos were due today and presentations next week. Some robots were modified versions of NXT robot build instructions found on the Internet, some are original. It has been a fun term, especially after a very stressful major project last term using MS Access.
