Short description Key concepts: sensors, transistors Duration: 2 hours
Using a photoresistor and an electronic switch to create a simple light tracking toy.

The students will be designing a small robot equipped with light sensors and capable of tracking sources of light shining in front of it. The provided kits have two light sensors, two motors, a few simple electronic elements for control (with explanations how those work), a board on which to connect the electronic elements without soldering, and glue and popsicle sticks to build the body of the robot.
