Robotic Gear Trains

Monday at VOB, Miller, and Highland

February 26, 2007

NXT and Early Simple Machines

Crimping paper worked great.

The motors were connected to the gear trains and the NXT programming

made for some interesting happenings.

Miller made many interesting gear trains.

Then they all worked very well together

to connect their gear trains

into one very long gear train.

Highlawn Kindergarten was quiet enough that the program could include wait for sound to work.

With this combination they had to time the sounds

to keep the crane from going too low or too high.
