The goal of this course is to take you through some of the most useful principles for building and using attachments to accomplish missions at FIRST LEGO League competitions. The whole course is based on a LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor and you need a single 51515 set and without additional parts (you will need a second color sensor for the lessons for using two color sensors, but feel free to skip them if you don't have it). For every mission there is a Scratch and Python program attachment. The course consists of 25 lessons suitable for beginner and advanced students. Every lessons consists of a video tutorial demonstrating the principle and how the mission could be accomplished along with building instructions for the robot, the attachment and programs for controlling the robot.
Throwing/Shooting is a common challenge in FIRST LEGO League competitions and in this robotics video tutorial we are demonstrating an attachment that you can use to throw/shoot a ball. There have been missions for throwing balls like in bawling, or like in soccer/football. The attachment that we use relies on the properties of the plastics used for the LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor 51515 set - it bends and it throws.
