Last week a small MX team headed down to local university, Brigham Young University, for a coding event for students. Our MX team was able to interact with a small group of students from the Computer Science program. Our MX Engineering team spent a few hours with students talking through process for an event that will surely leave a lasting impression. With pizza for fuel, the students went to work writing a program to drive the Roomba. With many worthy attempts by the students, we had five winners take home prizes!
Students were instructed to use a simulator to code a robot designed from a Roomba, whoever codes the Roomba to safely make it through the PVC pipe maze, wins the jackpot! (or $100).
