Youth Adventure Programs (YAP) DSTR Workshop
Mobile Integrated Solutions Laboratory (MISL) participated in Youth Adventure Programs this year. Youth Adventure Programs, or YAP, are one-week courses exploring different career fields. MISL is in charge of a course focusing on robotics, specifically using their own DSTR robots. Students, from sixth to tenth grade, designed, created, programmed, and controlled their very own DSTR robot.

Texas Instruments Nspire Workshop
This workshop was very similar to the YAP workshop with one main difference: the use of the Nspire Calculator. Instead of using the LaunchPad and Energia to code the robot, the Nspire and the Nspire’s code, Visual Basic, was used. This type of DSTR was coded differently in that the Nspire was coded to follow a line autonomously instead of being controlled by students on their phones, like in the YAP workshop. The calculator was even put on top of the robot where the LaunchPad is usually placed. A link to more information about this event is coming soon!
