Robotics: The students will learn the difference between point turns and pivot turns. They need to complete these lessons to do so. Then they will create a robot to compete in a base race tomorrow.
Aerospace: Satellite in orbit challenge.
Wednesday, Oct 2
Robotics: Base race turning program competition.
Aerospace: Satellite in orbit challenge due.
Thursday, Oct 3
Robotics: The students will use their turning programming skills to make and program a robot that can manuever within an "orchard."
Aerospace: The students will use Kerbal to figure out how to dock two spacecraft in orbit. They need to determine the relationship between orbital altitude and orbital velocity. Here's a Kerbal Wiki article to help those needing it and a great video to show how.
