Robotics for Grandparents, Day 5

Tomorrow will be the last day with labs.  Our problem today is the most complex we've tried.  The robot will follow a tape line on the whiteboard until it encounters an object (a DWV drain cap).  It will then stop and drop a ball into the cup.  If there is time, I will show some videos of space and commercial robots.  Otherwise, I will save them for next week.

Next week's session will be on robotics in the real world, including space robots, manufacturing robots, medical robots, and robot actors.  An extra treat will be a talk by a robotics consultant to NEISD.
