The theme for this week is Visual Art and Simulations with LEGO NXT and Scratch. Scratch is free software from MIT that lets kids create interactive art, music, animations, simulations, and games. Kids will make interactive art and simulations in Scratch. Kids will also create a rountine for a NXT robot and film the routine with glowsticks and long exposure techniques.
Students will use variables and math operations to create interactive Visual Art Projects with Scratch.
Students will simulate Gravity and Travel through 2 dimensional Space while creating a Target Game in Scratch.
Students will use Lego NXT Robotics to create a Robot Disk Spinner that changes motor speed and direction with sensor input.
Students will create a movement routine with a wheeled Lego NXT robot and film the routine using glowsticks and long exposure techniques.
