About This Activity

Using cybernetic principles pioneered by Norbert Wiener (1894-1964), campers will build a robotic dog that can walk, sense obstacles and navigate around them, and perform other tricks. Herbivores eat vegetables. Carnivores eat meat. A photovore seeks out the brightest light. Campers will build a robot that will turn and roll to locate and bask in the brightest light possible. When it finds the brightest light in a location, it will stop and emit a purr (or burp) to show that it is content. NOTE: THIS PROGRAM TYPICALLY RUNS MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY FOR A HALF DAY. FRIDAYS ARE TYPICALLY FIELD TRIP DAYS AND ARE THEREFORE FULL DAYS. FOR THIS WEEK, HOWEVER, THE FIELD TRIP IS ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, AS THE FACILITY IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON FRIDAYS.
