Relocate an Object The goal of this challenge is to move an object from one location to another. The object to be moved will have to be lifted out of a base that it starts in. The board will have tape laid down on it like the picture below. Be Advised that each board is not designed exactly the same. Choose one board and continue to program and test on that board ONLY! RULES 1) Your robot must have all the points that touch the ground start inside the 12” square box. Your robot may extend beyond the starting box as long as the parts that extend beyond the box do not touch the ground when the program is started. 2) No part of your robot can begin the challenge inside the circle of tape around the object. 3) The base that the object starts inside of will be fixed to the board so that it does not move. The object will have to be lifted out of the base in order to move it. 4) Once you start your program there are no limits to where your robot travels. In other words, there are no off limit areas on this board. 5) The object does not have to be standing up straight at the end of the challenge. 6) Your robot can not be touching the object at the end of the challenge. 7) Your robot can not include ANYTHING that does not come as a part of your Robolab kit. You are limited by the number and type of parts that your kit inventory sheet indicates. (no borrowing parts from other groups or using extra parts if your kit initially started with more of something than it should have had) 8) You get TWO tries for points on this challenge. TEST TEST TEST your robot before you try for points. Please be advised that your teacher will let you know when it is your time to be tested. SCORING See Score Card Hints: Think outside the box on this challenge. You will have to come up with something very creative in order to overcome the parts limitation. Remember, as long as your creation meets all the requirements listed above, your design is legal.

Remember this is an individual activity and your responses will be different from your partner at times. STAPLE your answers to the score sheet and turn in to the teacher. Please answer the following on how the Relocate an Object went. Question #1: How has your team been working as a team? Are there any problems? Concerns? What can you do to make your team better? Question # 2: When you first started this activity what was the first design you thought up to use. Did your original design work or did you need to think up another design to work for this activity? Question # 3: Was this activity challenging? What was hard or easy about this activity? What would you do to improve or change this activity? Question # 4: Print out a copy of your program (one copy from each team member). Under each program icon explain what the program is doing so that a person who has never used the program would know what is happening with your program. Question # 5: Is your design an original? Or did you get some ideas from other teams/students. Question # 6: During the building of this activity you have seen many different designs being built and used. The two most used designs are the crane and the Roverbot. Each design works differently and has the same effect at the end. I want you to compare and contrast the differences between each design and justify to me which design you feel would be the most reliable to do this activity.
