This video follows the Jinx team through Space Camp’s Robotics to the Rescue Challenge. The team is given a robot and then allowed to design and build modifications, program, and finally test their robot. The robots must be designed and programmed to complete an obstacle course that involves rescuing a stranded astronaut, delivering oxygen, releasing a solar aray for energy, and delivering supplies. The Jinx team goes through many modifications and tests before getting their robot just right. They are able to earn enough points in the obstacle course to land them in 2nd place. This video is circa 2000.
