7 “Oh, you actually DO something in your class? I thought you just played with LEGOs.”

8 Application of classroom concepts Technical reading Task-oriented problem solving Career exploration High interest Connections to “real engineering” Teamwork and group dynamics

9 1.Choose a partner. 2.Each person needs to retrieve a bag of LEGOs from the table. 3.Determine who in your pair is taller. That person will be Leader 1. The other will be Leader 2. 4.Using only the LEGO pieces in your bag, Leader 1 will create a structure using fewer than 10 pieces. Hide your structure from your partner. NO PEEKING!!

10 Leader 1: Give Leader 2 instructions on how to build your structure. Describe the pieces the best you can. Length Color Shape Use Hide your structure from your partner. NO PEEKING!!

11 Debrief: Successes? Challenges?

12 no·men·cla·ture 1.The devising or choosing of names for things, esp. in a science or other discipline. 2.The body or system of such names in a particular field: "the nomenclature of chemical compounds". Why is nomenclature important?

13 Resources: 9797 LEGO Education Users Guide pdf Page 69 in Building Guide in kit Measuring Card

14 Leader 2: Using fewer than ten pieces, create a structure different from the one you built earlier. Give Leader 1 instructions on how to build your structure. This time, use LEGO nomenclature to describe the pieces and placement in your structure. Hide your structure from your partner. NO PEEKING!!

15 Debrief: How did the addition of nomenclature change this activity? How can this apply to teamwork as a whole?

22 Blocks 1&3: Forward, Back, Turn Right, Turn Left, Back Right, Back Left, Back Right 2, Back Left 2 Either Block 1 or Block 3 MUST be a turn. Blocks 2&4: Empty Block 5: Loop

23 Debrief: What did you discover?

24 5 – Block Programming

25 Block 1: Forward Block 2: Wait 5 Blocks 3&4:Empty Block 5: Stop

26 Leader 1: Start robot and measure final distance Leader 2: Measure final distance. TrialDistance (cm) Repeat this test with each type of wheel.

27 What can we learn about our robot by analyzing these sets of data?

28 Challenge: Using any set of wheels, create a program that will allow your robot to travel EXACTLY

29 Debrief: What curricular connections are made in this lesson?
