In the "Irish Pet Project," first-year Notre Dame engineering students worked with fifth-graders to brainstorm ideas for toy robotic pets. The Notre Dame students will then design and build these pets using the LEGO®Mindstorms® NXT system and demonstrate them at the intermediate schools at a later date, when the fifth-graders will judge them.
The South Bend students also will participate in the "2010 Domer Freewheeling Derby," during which they will design and race LEGO vehicles to learn about energy and motion. Through racing their designs and collecting data, the students will learn how scientists and engineers test their ideas with experiments.
