Photos: Kids Take Lego Robots for a Spin on Obstacle Course
The Lego Robotics event attracted a large crowd of onlookers in the East Lake Library's community room, where an obstacle course was set up on the floor for the Lego Robots.
Recipe for Lego Robot fun:
- Take some Legos
- Add electronic parts
- Add a computer
- Toss in some creative kids
- Mix together slowly
- Place individual Lego Robots on obstacle course to see what happens
A group of creative kids tested out Lego Robots they made at the East Lake Library on Monday, Nov. 19.
The event attracted a large crowd of onlookers in the library's community room, where an obstacle course was set up on the floor. The kids each took turns seeing how the robots they built and programmed fared on the course.
The robots were made from Legos and electronic pieces. The kids used a computer to program the robot's movements on the course, with the goal of having the robots follow a line on the course and pull in and out of wooden boxes along the course.
The robots were quite entertaining. Some whizzed through the course easily, while others veered off course and attempted to climb the sides of the wooden boxes resulting in lots of giggles from the crowd.
