Project Ideas for NXT Dog Sled

1. Have students problem solve by creating new dog designs for the dog sled. Older students can download and tweak the program in addition to designing new dogs.

2. After students have built the NXT Dog Sled, have them redesign their own sled and then program it to complete a given course.

Project Ideas for the EV3 Lego Husky Dog

1. Use masking tape to create a trail or path on the classroom floor. Have students program their dog to complete the trail and time how long it takes them to complete the trail without going outside the lines.

2. As students get more proficient with programming, add challenges such as mountains or ramps, moose to detour around, etc..

3. Students can design a sled to attach to the dogs and then have the dog and sled complete a designated course.

iStopMotion App for iPad

Students created an eight second video of a husky howling using the iStopMotion app. The app is great for school projects because you can stop and restart easily the next day. You never lose your place with the onion skin feature.
