Using Lego NXT robots and the simple click of a mouse, robots are brought to life at Discovery Place. Groups work in small numbers to program basic commands such as driving, spinning and stopping, and then move on to free exploration time. After learning the basics of robot program and movements, participants show off their skills during a fun robotic dance challenge where the robots boogie, shimmy and hip hop their best programmed moves. Last but not least, groups add a light sensitive eye, taking their robots to the next level of cyber intelligence.
