Introduction to programming using Robolab

Dozer Lab 5

Dozer’s are cool… …but, not necessarily quick. You can use it in the “Can Do”, “follow the line”, and incline plane programming labs.

Skidder Lab 4

The skidder is built with a light sensor to be used in the “follow the line” lab. It includes an optional gearing section. On a hard, smooth surface, a skidder turns more consistently than a third wheel.

Acrobat Lab 3

Uses light sensor.

Acrobat Lab 2

Uses hand held touch sensors to let kids remote control the movement of the robots. Helps kids understand how motor rotation controls the direction of robot.
