Objectives: Students will
1.) Create a mission assignment for another programming group to complete.
2.) Work in cooperative groups to program the NXT Mindstorm Robot to complete.
3.) Analyze and evaluate programming to make sure that all moments complete the mission. Record trials in their mission notebooks.
4.) Measure and cut mission mats for simulation.
Lesson Overview: Students work together to create a program for another programming team. Program will have six programming moves for the robot to complete. Students will swap programming assignments and work as teams to complete missions. Students will write up mission report and make observational notes to help them complete their assigned missions.

Objectives for Lesson : Students will.....
1.) create a mission that uses seven commands that incorporate the use of a touch sensor.
2.) write out commands and assign different variables to each command.
3.) record observations and changes in scientific notebooks.
Lesson Overview: Teacher will instruct how to make tight turns within a tight location and demonstrate a program where a touch sensor is used to time out commands. Students will work together to come up with a program and a mission plan that gives information based on what programmers want the robot to do.
Evidence of Learning: Completed mission plan and written evidence of change in write up.
