Rainy Day Robotics

We have had several busy weekends in a row and though there are many outdoor projects to be done the weather this past weekend didn't cooperate, forcing us to spend the weekend inside. It actually was kind if nice to just slow down for a few days. 
Kenzie and Dom took the chance to program her Lego
Mindstorm robot that she got for Christmas.  They had previously put it together and done some basic stuff with it, but now it was time to really have fun with it.  It's always neat to see the two of them work things out together. 

This is the final project.  The robot shoots at any obstacles with the little colored balls.  Very Fun!
Kenzie has played around with the programming and now has it shooting only when it sees certain colors.
