Lesson: "Move until Near"

The goal of this lesson is to explore the use of the NXT ultrasonic sensor and understand the parameters of the Wait-for-Distance block. Students will work through the "Moving until Near" video lesson 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 respond to the ultrasonic sensor

2. Control the response of a robot through the NXT-G Wait-for-Ultrasonic-Sensor block parameters

3. Explain the role of each parameter in the Wait-for- Ultrasonic-Sensor block configuration panel
