As a part of the WCCS SouthWest Sydney Brickfest the WCCS Device/Maker Club has been building robots with lego Mindstorms NXT.
The robots will be shown as a part of the display at the Brickfest on Saturday, 4th June from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. We will also bring along a Makey Makey and some Arduino microprocessors for the WCCS Makers to show you.
Below is one of our creations. It is a remote controlled NXT Lawn Mower which is controlled via bluetooth from a mobile phone.
Ryan has spent some time building with NXT. This is what he had to say.
Whilst creating the Lego NXT robots for Brickfest it brought back cherished childhood memories…
Brickfest is going to be like Lego heaven with other people’s amazing creations perfected over years of practise. Make sure to buy your tickets so you don’t miss out on all the fun and excitement that the day will hold.
If Lego has never been your thing but robotics has, the WCCS Device Club could be for you. It’s not just big boys toys—the whole WCCS family, from teachers to primary kids, can be involved in creating and perfecting their craft.
Join us on Tuesday lunchtimes to learn and share your own creativity.
