Newbury Students Code Dash and Dot through Challenging Maze

The NES 5/6 Otters were challenged to get Dash through a maze, complete with block boundaries, angle variations, and light changes. Here's a video of some of the problem solving at work!  Six teams of 3 measured, calculated, and discussed for 40 minutes and then each team linked up to Dash and took it for a test drive. No one made it through the maze...this time around. They reflected on changes to make, and we'll do that when we return in 2017!

Having Dash & Dot visit NES was a huge success, so much so that our principal has agreed that we need to have our own! Thank you to Game Theory for sponsoring these robots and we look forward to watching their travels throughout Vermont in the coming months.
