Having descended the mountain, you must take a perilous journey back to the RAF SV Base as quickly as possible. Be prepared for landslides!
Race Challenge: Redesign and program your SV to transport the injured minifigure as quickly as possible back to base! Speed (and straight line) will be the key to success!
So you have built an SV and set the motors to 100% Great job!
But we now have a real need for greater speed.
So get set and be ready to grab some gears…
Don’t forget to design your SV to deal with potential landslide impact!
So your SV is up to speed but does it go in a straight-line? Will it keep going in a straight line if it suffers an impact from a landslide?
It is time to release the power of the Gyro sensor.
Congratulations! You’ve completed the Race Challenge – that was one speedy robot Support Vehicle!
It’s time to complete your CREST Award Workbook:
In Part 2.2 and 2.3, record how your building and coding skills developed when you tackled the Race Challenge. You got to grips with gears – what did you discover?
Finally, complete Part 3: ‘Finalising Your Project’ in your workbook. Take some time to reflect on your project – What went well for your team? What have you learned?
