Summary of Upcoming Activities:
Robotics: Beginning July 20th, we will have use of a VEX robotic kit. Two teams will contruct 4 wheel robots for contests. Team 1 will build a radio controlled robot for controlled runs around an obstacle course. Each cadet has a trial, with best times, and fewest penalties winning. Team 2 also builds a robot, but instead of being radio controlled, this robot is autonomous having 3 line following sensors wired to a programmable brain. Programming will be done using EasyC. A course will be laid out using black tape. Cadet team pairs, in team 2, who have written and downloaded controlling code, will compete for best time, fewest penalties.
