This week was pretty exciting.
The Lego Mindstorm kits come with a color sensor. The sensor can detect different colors or changes in color, and can be programmed to do different tasks, using the switch block, using the imput from the sensor.
I made a maze using a thick black line and some different color swatches that the kids had to navigate.
Rose: The kids really liked using the sensors to detect different colors.
Bud: Will they someday work for Google designing self-driving cars? Maybe!
Thorn: Some of the sensors were a bit glitchy and did not work as well as expected.
