Lego Mindstorms Workshop 88 Class Followup

On Saturday August 25th, Jay held a NXT-G class at Workshop 88. He spent several weeks teaching kids at the Inzone program at Harper College, but this time he was teaching adults which is a very different experience! He quickly covered the basics of how each block works and how to use wires to pass data values around the program. He then explained how the programming can be applied to a sumo robot, and walked through the logic and the programming part-by-part to show how the settings affected the actions. There was even some of the Arduino code which he use with my NXshield to show how each command would look in a text based language in comparison to a graphical one. He  also talked a little bit about NXC code for comparisons as well. After talking about programming and robots, the class started to discuss starting a FLL team. We are now seeing if we can get a FLL team together, and It is happening quickly! Jay been in involved in varying capacities with FLL for 10 years now. You can see his involvement here in this spreadsheet.
