Explore the complexities of God’s creation with Bob Jones University's Technology Ministry Team. During this program, you will get a close-up introduction to how robots work using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT. Together with a small team of other participants, you will program a robot to respond to sound, recognize colors or execute other programmed commands. These programs are open to students in fifth through twelfth grades.*
Two versions of the program are available. In the 1-hour session, put your problem-solving and teamwork skills to the test as you program pre-built robots. For a more in-depth look at how these robots work, the 2-hour session gives you the exciting task of building the robot that you will program.
Tickets for the one-hour session (program pre-built robots) are $3.50 while those for the two-hour session (build and program robots) are $5.00.
Museum admission or membership is required to purchase a program ticket. Members and Passholders receive a 10% discount for onsite ticket purchases. One free observer space (e.g., for a parent) is available with each participant ticket purchased.
*Children in third and fourth grades may participate if accompanied by an older sibling.
