Bombs Away!
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Students design and build devices to protect and accurately deliver dropped eggs. The devices and their contents represent care packages that must be safely delivered to people in a disaster area with no road access. Similar to engineering design teams, students design their devices using a number of requirements and constraints such as limited supplies and time. The activity emphasizes the change from potential energy to kinetic energy of the devices and their contents and the energy transfer that occurs on impact. Students enjoy this competitive challenge as they attain a deeper understanding of mechanical energy concepts.

Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Once students demonstrate proficiency in VEX Robotics, it is time for the application of knowledge in Real World Situations.

Students will learn Automated Straightening, Studying Variables in code, how to run true/false statements, setting parameters in a sonar function, implementing functions with parameters in programs, and how to encapsulate discrete behaviors in functions.

Students then go on to work on straightening statements using if/then, how to change values which the Vex Sonar Sensor measures in, and explore values associated with the sonar sensor when it receives an echo and when it does not.
