Project Name: Robot Soccer Controlled by: Programming orRemote Control Programming Difficulty: Medium-Hard Construction Difficulty: Medium General Comment. This is a great activity.
Rules FOR STUDENTS
You must use: -1 NXT or EV brick -2 motors
You must: Build a robot that can play soccer against others.
Tips For students
Tip: Cars with four wheels will go straighter. Especially if both motors turn one axel. Tip: Cars that use gears will go faster. A big gear on the motor and a small gear on the wheel will make the wheel turn faster. To use gears, the wheel's axel can't go through the motor's hole.
This video uses a computer (rather than tablet) to program, and special sensors and ball. It's pretty high tech. If it's too hard, students will have had just as much fun, if not more, by using remote-control.
Grading option: The more wins, the better the grade. If you are scoring each game, make a copy of this Google Sheet to help you score
