Lesson: "Moving Straight"

The goal of this lesson is to have students write their first NXT-G program and learn to use most of the parameters of the Move Block. This lesson uses the "Moving Straight" video from the "NXT Video Trainer 2.0" product from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy.

Students will be able to:

1. Write an NXT-G program for a robot to move straight

2. Control the straight movement of a robot through the NXT-G Move block parameters

3. Explain the role of each parameter in the Move block configuration panel

4. Calculate the required Move block parameters for a desired movement
