This summer camp theme explores MOTION! See part two for Simple Machines and more.
|Project:||Description:||Related concepts and machines:|
|Human-Robot Communication||From Code.org and DiscoverE. Communicating with our fellow humans precisely isn’t always easy! We’ll first give directions to an assembler with words, then use only symbols and algorithms.||Directions and Coding. 3D Printers, Fanuc Robot & Fanuc Punchtape, Haas DT1|
|Sphero Bumper Cars||From Sphero Education. Drag-and-drop programming will use a small robot’s sensors to detect collisions.||Sensors and Coding: Haas Dt1, D-Tect It Sensors, Measurement|
|Space Suit Design||From NASA’s “Getting the Right Fit.” In this activity, we’ll use interchangeable parts to get the right fit for a spacesuit arm, and allow for maximum range of motion.||Designing for Motion, Planes, Measurement. Jo-Blocks, Interchangeable parts, NASA Artemis Mission and xEMU Suits, axes used on comparator or in CNC.|
We collected these free resources online, and combined they make about one day’s worth of activities (three projects, cleanup, lunch, and breaks).
