    • This may be done using the Lego programming tutorial as well
  2. Students are still in their groups of three:
    1. programmer (working on computer
    2. Mathematician (figures out how many rotations)
    3. technician (handles the robot). All students contribute to the programming and calculating. Students switch roles for each chore
  3. Task: A book is put in the middle of the floor. A piece of tape is put about 3 ft away from the book. The robot is to be set by the teacher on the piece of tape facing a random direction. The students are to program and then make it so they can direct the robot by clapping so that it runs into the book.
