Any other ideas besides sumo? Has anyone done a maze challenge? I agree. My kids really love sumo and get so into  it.

I let the kids pick their own demonstration show with the robots.   They do indeed love to have the robots fight each other.  It's never looked particularly interesting to me, or to many spectators, but the kids  really get into it.   Last year one of the robots had two "fighting modes" and used a button to toggle from one to the other.  When their robot was being pushed all around they pushed the button and it became the pusher.   This was one of the big events of the day for the kids doing robots.

Subject: Re: [VADCFLL-L] Robotics camp using FLL

My team is looking forward to doing a sumo contest in two weeks.  You teach/learn about the light sensor and then you let the kids design a robot that can knock another robot out of a ring.  The guide I'm using, "Educate NXT", has them learning why the robot is acting the way it does (i.e staying inside the black circle.).  The teacher can allow the students to program the robot, or make a standard program and allow everyone to use that one.  You can also revisit this idea at another time by adding, touch sensors and ultrasonic sensors to the mix and then letting them battle it out again. Tthe idea of robot battles is VERY attractive to the kids, so if it were me, I would find some time to fit it in the camp.
Regards,
Brandy

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Robotics camp using FLL

Camp Occohannock on the bay is getting together a robotics camp for one week this summer.  I have been asked to help out, we may be pulling in the FRC team 1893.

So are there any ideas or course structure around a one week robotics camp?

We have two NXT kits and parts, two or three PC's  and one table and field set up.  What else would you recommend for a week camp?

This is the most beautiful place on earth.
