The 2013 Robotics Institute‘s LEGO IC Challenge involved programming with ROBOTC! This year’s challenge was based on a standard mini-golf course. Each team needed to build a robot using the Lego NXT and program in ROBOTC to traverse a moving platform, ford a “sand” trap (or go around), and duck through a spinning windmill.
The challenge is part of the Robotics Institute’s Robotics Immigration Course, which all Robotics students must attend at the beginning of their first semester in the program. The course is a series of lectures, discussions, and demonstrations that familiarize the students with Carnegie Mellon and the Robotics Program, introducing them to the research projects and faculty within the Program and affiliated departments, and describe the computational and other resources available in the Program. The Robotics Immigration Course gives the students an opportunity to learn what it means to conduct research and to get to know the faculty in the Robotics Program.
Congrats to Neil Abcouwer, Hugo Ponte, Erik Nelson, and Nicholas Gisolfi, who came in first place at the challenge!
We are extremely excited to announce our new teacher certification courses! A “Robotics Academy Certified Instructor” is officially certified by Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy.
