DiscoveryCamp Mindstorms NXT

If you want to see some real applications of robotics, head to a factory. If you want to want to make robots, upgrade them and experiment, follow this series! You will discover genuine mechanisms that sort, transfer, detect, or count various objects and solutions that used to innovate industries around the world. Uncover another aspect of applied robotics and learn how to think like an engineer.
Lessons available in monthly and annual subscriptions.

Discover how robotic solutions are actually used in the real world. Follow this industrial series to create robots and algorithms utilized in factories, workshops, or in life threatening emergencies. Moreover, this advanced series is a great introduction for robotics competitions. Materials for each exercise include:

  • extensive introduction illustrated with graphics and animations,
  • detailed instructions for building LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robot,
  • step-by-step programming guide,
  • access to additional teaching resources.

Exercises

ANEMOMETER

How can you measure the speed of wind? With this incredibly useful anemometer! Like a sailor or airplane pilot, start keeping track of the wind activity to learn more about the weather to come.

BRIDGE LAYER

This ingenious, modelled after real-life vehicles bridge layer will take you anywhere you wish to go. Assemble it using the instructions provided, create the program according to guidelines and head for the divide!

CONVEYOR

There’s no better way to easily and efficiently transport goods in a factory than via a network of conveyors. Follow instructions to build a unique, perpetual conveyor with a program ensuring smooth work.

FLIGHT SIMULATOR

Operate a helicopter in a flight simulator created with your own hands! Your first flying lesson starts as soon as you assemble the construction and complete the programming script.

LAUNCHER

How’s your aim? Find out by creating and testing out this universal launcher. Its ultrasonic sensor will tell you exactly how far the target is - all you must do is aim and press the button to fire.

MANIPULATOR

Manipulators are like robotic hands, designed for special and predetermined purposes. Your aim is to pick up and transport a colorful ball to another stand. Use instructions and your own ingenuity to complete this task.

MAZEBOT

Navigating through a maze is no simple task. Fortunately, you can create a robot precisely for this task! Its construction guarantees stability and grip, while its program makes sure to pick the right way out.

MUSIC BOX

Music box is a unique robot that changes your LEGO Mindstorms NXT bricks into a musical instrument. Want to take your chances at composing music? Just get some colorful bricks and start playing!

PIN COUNTER

How many pins fit into your hand? To find out, just drop the pins inside the container and wait until the robot counts them for you. Follow instructions to build your personal pin counter and discover what other counters are used for.

TESTER

Testers are incredibly useful machines that are much better at evaluating physical qualities than humans. The robot you’re going to build relies on color sensor to detect and select items presented before it.

VEHICLE

This simple robot moves on three wheels and can be a perfect start into building mobile constructions. Its design leaves space for creativity, so it’s up to you what this vehicle will truly be capable of!
