Session 1

In session one we defined the word Robot. We labeled the different part of a robot, for example we labeled the elbow, base, shoulders, gripper etc. We listed different advantages and disadvantages a robot could have, a advantage could have been it never got tired or it never never needed a brake. A disadvantage was it cost to much or it was easily to brake.we also learned how to opreate with Sam.

Session 2

In session two we designed Sam a task, than we had to teach it to him so he could perform it. We taught Sam to perform the task and to run the task on the computer.

Session 3

In session three we learned how a touch sensor functions and and learn how to program the NXT Brick. We also designed an NXT brick and successfully run the program. A touch sensor is is a simple mechanism that contains a button and a switch. When the button is pressed, the switch is thrown and the circuits inside of the sensor connect.

Session 4

In session 4 we learned how an ultrasonic sensor works, we created a program using an ultrasonic sensor and the NXT brick. Then in the end we ran the program using the NXT brick. A ultrasonic sensor is a type of sensor for detecting liquids, clear objects, or irregularly shaped objects.

Session 5

In session 5 we learned how the computer programs operate, learned how a sound sensor functions. We also created a program using the sound sensor and the NXT brick and then successfully ran the program. A sound sensor is a device that detects or senses heat, light, sound, motion, etc., and then reacts to it in a particular way.

Session 6

In session 6 we learned how a light sensor function, created a program using the light sensor and the NXT brick, then we ran the program using the NXT brick. A light sensor is a photo sensors or photo detectors are sensors of light or other electromagnetic energy

Session 7

In session 7 we learned how to combine multiple sensors on a robot. We created a program using multiple sensors and the NXT brick then ran the program.
