Using LEGO, the students must build a throwing arm for the Fable robot, which they will then program. They must then analyse the throw using software called “Logger Pro” from Vernier (which is not described in more detail in this process).
The students must build and program a robot that responds to motion, making use of the camera on the computer or a webcam.
Then they must program a surveillance robot that reacts to movement.
Students build Fable as a social robot with a mobile phone and the Fable Face app.
– Get Fable to wave
– Get Fable to laugh
– Get Fable to change mood using the app
