Activity B: Competitive Challenge!

The goal of this activity is to use your Clawbot skills to collect several objects, one at a time, and return them to a location faster than the other groups in your class. Good luck!

Here are some steps to guide your team:

  • Builder: Move your group’s objects behind the object retrieval area your teacher has established, and make sure your Clawbot has space to move without interfering with other groups.

  • Driver: List the steps the Clawbot will need to grab each object and return them to home base. Be sure to include which buttons you’ll use to accomplish this task!

  • Recorder: Write the steps the Driver lists in the engineering notebook.

  • Programmer: Using the classroom clock or a watch, keep time and report it to the Recorder.

  • Driver: Retrieve each object as quickly as you can.

  • Recorder: Record the time in your engineering notebook.

Congratulations! You have collected all three of your group’s objects, returned them to home base with your Clawbot using the Controller!

Activity C: Teamwork Challenge!

The goal of this activity is to use your Clawbot and teamwork skills in a relay race. The team will be responsible for moving an object across a three meter course in the fastest time possible.

Player 1: Pick the object and carry it to the one meter line. Drop the object.
Player 2: Pick up the object and carry from the one to the two meter line. Drop the object.
