EP Robo Club Meeting Friday

The Encino Park Elementary Robotics Club met again on Friday, October 2nd.  At this meeting, the teams were given challenges based on their readiness.  Those who were making the most progress were assigned a board challenge, in which they had to push an object to a point without going too far, then turn.  It was interesting to see how everyone attacked that problem.  Ms. Craig demonstrated how to use the motor's Rotation Sensor to find out how many rotations would go 12 inches.  I suggested that in this exercise the students use a pointer (like an axle) pointed toward the surface to precisely index the starting and ending locations.
