    The robotic students will be given the challenge to create a mechanical golf swing machine that is powered by another motor using Faraday's law. Click on the appropriate link for the instructions to build the large motor club, medium motor club, or the remote. Save the file to your documents and then open them in LEGO Digital Designer.

    The aerospace students will continue to construct their probe models from last week. They will be due Wednesday. When the models are complete, the students need to research to find the probe's misson patch, its objectives, and what discoveries has the probe made. The results of this research will be shared with the class Wednesday with the model.

    Roboics: Faraday's Golf Tournament challenge.

    Aerospace: The aerospace students will continue to construct their probe models from last week. They will be due tomorrow. When the models are complete, the students need to research to find the probe's misson patch, its objectives, and what discoveries has the probe made. The results of this research will be shared with the class tomorrow with the model.

    Robotics: Students will learn how transistors work. The students will learn about the history of computers while investigating Moore's Law. Use this data on transistors to compare the actual growth rate with that predicted by Moore's Law. Then they will work with binary numbers to see how a computer represents letters and numbers.

    Aerospace students will share their model and research. Then the students will create a probe in the Kerbal Space Program. The probe is due Friday.

    Robotics-Students will learn how to maneuver within the menus on the EV3 brick.  Then we will learn how to use the Port View option within the menu. We will learn what firmware is and update the EV3's brick's firmware. They will also build their first tribot.

    Aerospace students will work on creating their own probe design in Kerbal Space Program.

    Friday, Sep 13

    Robotics- We will build the tribot and create a 5 step program on the brick itself. The program must include at least one sensor. 
     
    Aerospace-Kerbal Space Program probe due.
