Robo-Families –Soccer with the ball kicker!

When you kick a ball, your hip joint and knee joint muscles work together to produce a sort of crack-the-whip effect for increased speed and force when striking the ball.  This Ball Kicker project synchronizes the NXT motors in its joints to produce a similar effect to give the NXT ball a good whack.
Science East offers a series of Saturday afternoon Robotics sessions designed for families. Children and their parents/guardians build and program robots using LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3. Sessions are offered every few weeks, each with a different theme.

Members: $15+tax (1 child & 1 adult)
