GTT Students Build and Program Gear Mechanisms

My Gateway to Technology students built different mechanisms out of Vex Robotics’ kits.  They then gave presentations on the mechanisms (which I wished I had recorded) where they discussed the movement of the mechanism, the gear ratio, the input and output movement and other factors.  Finally they added motors and programmed the mechanisms to turn on and off at the push of a button and to loop continuously.  They used Robot C for their programming.
