Activities

50cm and no more-
We tried the 50 cm and no more activity but it did not work as my USB port on my computer was not allowing the USB cord to connect the NXT brick to the Lego Mindstorms Education NXT Programming. I restarted my laptop and the USB port started working again.

There and back again-
At first we were not sure where we should place the blocks in the Mindstorm program, but after a couple tries we managed to get it working.

Brace, brace, brace-
The program did not run accordingly the first few times we tried to do the block, block, block activity. There were some minor errors but we accomplished it with a few more tries.

Edge finder-
This worked pretty well the first time, just when the robot turned it turned to much, that just had to be altered.

Walls and Edges-
The aim is when the robot hits an edge or wall it moves forward and rotates around. The only issue is that the robot rotated too much but that was easily adjusted to.
