Henry Team Wins 2nd Place Lego Monorail Robot Contest
IBM donated Lego Mindstorm NXT kits and gave them to local high schools in Rochester MN, and had a competition at the Rochester Technical college for elementary up to high school. A lot of these rigs didn't work right, but Henry's worked just fine. These had to ride on a monorail, use an optical sensor to pick up "cargo" and drop them off, and then quickly reprogram to do a slightly different task.
