Part of Lesson Plan: Programming Tasks on the NXT Block
Activity Overview / Details
As the hook once students have finished the bell work bring out two rubics cubes. Ask students if anyone has seen one before. Ask two students if they would like to come up to the front of the room and see who can solve one side of the cube the quickest. Give up to 3 minutes but not more than that. Sometimes this activity can last awhile depending on the students. Once you have a winner ask the students to have a seat and then show the video rubicscube. After the video, ask the students what type of sensor they think that the robot is using? The type of sensor that the robot is using is called a color sensor. There are many different types of sensors that are made for the NXT robot but this one for the rubics cube program does not come with the NXT 9797 kit educational kit.
