Just wanted to let you all know that Techbrick (a Maryland team) has added
some resources to their website. (See their email below).
We like the image of the mat and use it to plot the robot’s paths.
Sometimes we laminate it and use wet erase pens to draw the paths. Other
times we have copied it into Microsoft’s OneNote (a great application!)and draw
our paths on the image using colored markers in that application. We copy
it multiple times and have an image for each robot run. Using OneNote we
can save our work and print it if desired. OneNote is like having an
electronic notebook with tabs and pages within each tab. It has a clipping
feature that lets you clip things from the web – great for saving research
info. It adds the URL under the clipping so you can remember where it came
After the challenge is released, Techbrick usually publishes a score sheet,
which we have found helpful. This, too, we have laminated for reuse.
It sums up the missions nicely all on one page with pictures of the mission
models. So check back in September for that item.
