Exercises

crane CityCAMP WeDoCRANE

Thanks to a strong rope, the harbor crane model can carry even enormously heavy LEGO cargos. Its base includes a turntable, the element which allows the crane to revolve around its own axis. The robot model includes a tilt sensor, which enables controlling the boom and the hook to lift or lower the cargo. During this exercise, it is worth to talk with children about various types of cranes, their construction and application.

biplane CityCAMP WeDoBIPLANE

The biplane robot is composed of two parts: the base powering the biplane, and the plane itself. Both parts are connected via an accelerating gear transmission, which turns the rotor in accordance with the readout from the attached distance sensor. During the class, we discuss milestones in aviation history and pioneering flying machines.

helicopter CityCAMP WeDoHELICOPTER

This helicopter model has one motor, which powers both the main and the tail rotors. It is made possible by using a long transmission shaft relaying the drive force to the machine’s tail and two transmission gears. The robot has a tilt sensor, which detects the helicopter’s current position. This exercise is a perfect time to discuss with children how these heavy machines are able to fly, and where helicopters prove to be indispensable.

pump CityCAMP WeDoPUMP

The pump model resembles the equipment used to extract petroleum from under the ground – the so-called pumpjack. It relies on a piston to convert the motor’s rotational motion into linear motion. In order to control the motor’s rotation speed, the construction uses a distance sensor. While playing with this robot, children come across a chance to hear about the history of fossil fuel extraction techniques and methods for its utilization. In the lesson, we discuss other energy sources as well, including the increasingly popular clean energy.

manipulator CityCAMP WeDoMANIPULATOR

Manipulator is a robot that resembles modern devices often used in various laboratories. Equipped with a gripper, it can be used to move items or specimen from one table to another. The tilt sensor is used to control the machine. The worm gear installed inside the model slows down its movement, but also makes it very precise. This exercise can be a great opportunity to discuss different technological solutions applied in scientifically advanced laboratories and industry, or to present various ways of using manipulators.

forklift CityCAMP WeDoFORKLIFT

The robot resembles a forklift truck used for lifting heavy loads in various warehouses. The tilt sensor is affixed on top of the vehicle and is used to lift and lower the cargo. The model is equipped with four wheels, which make the whole construction stable and mobile at the same time, able to carry packages just like the real forklifts do. The lesson is also a chance to discuss with children how forklifts work in reality, what are their varieties, and what exactly is the short-distance transport.

+++++++++++++++++++++
railway CityCAMP WeDoMINE RAILWAY

This construction consists of a wagon, which is pulled up the track, and a machine unit, which provides the driving force. The mine wagon is connected to a line wound on a drum winch. Controlling the mine train is possible via a special control stick equipped with a tilt sensor. Tilting the stick raises or lowers the mine wagon. During the class we discuss different mines and the natural resources people obtain from within.

windmill CityCAMP WeDoWINDMILL

The windmill model is composed of a tall tower with rotor and spinning blades installed on top. The motion sensor affixed behind the rotor can count revolutions of the blades. The motor is placed on a stable base and its power is transmitted through a long shaft. This exercise is an excellent opportunity to talk about numerous renewable and non-renewable energy sources, as well as methods of saving the energy.
