The pilgrimage in the middle-ages

Programming level 1

Build a donkey with interesting movement

P1

How to build

Donkey

  • Use the assembly instructions
  • This construction is built on eccentric spinning
  • Use 1 DC motor and 1 battery box
  • The donkey should move when the battery box is switched on

Programming level 2

Build the donkey stopping at the different stops of the pilgrimage

P2

How to build

Donkey

  • Use a motherboard, 2 DC motors, 1 Sound sensor, 1 LED
  • Create a „pilgrimage route”
  • The donkey should start when it hears clapping
  • It stops at the next stop and waits for another clap – and repeats

Programming level 3

Build road signs

P3

How to build

Road signs

  • Build 3 road signs – each turning around a servo motor
  • Each should include 1-1 Touch sensor
  • Hide the Touch sensors behind a wall
  • When the Touch sensor is pressed, the road sign rotates to a preset position, then returns to the original position after 2 seconds
  • Build a robot with a donkey on top (use 2 DC motors and 4 Touch sensors)
  • Program it to work with a 4-button remote control
  • 2 children play with the robots: one controls the markers, the other has to drive the donkey in the direction indicated by the markers

Programming level 4

Build road signs

P4

How to build

Road signs

  • Build the road signs and remote-controlled robot like in P3
  • Install 1 IR Photoreflector and 1 LED on each road sign
  • When the IR Photoreflector detects that the donkey robot is approaching the road sign, the sign turns in a random direction and the LED lights up
  • The robot must be moved in the direction shown
  • When the robot leaves the road sign (detected by IR Photoreflector), the sign returns to its original position

OR

  • Connect 2 Touch sensors to each signpost
  • Turn the sign (in steps) as long as the Touch sensor is pressed – one to the right and one to the left
  • Move the remote control robot in the direction shown
