Title: Programming for Data Logging Missions

Activity Proposer/Blogger: Jane Taylor, President of Educational Robotics Consulting Firm Bot Shop LLC and Director of Tech It Out Robotics Summer Camps

Duration: One to two 45-minute periods

Content Area: Mathematics and Science

Targeted Grade Level: 5-8 and 9- 12

National Standards:

Abilities of technological design and Understanding about Science and Technology

Nature of Scientific Knowledge

Materials: 1 NXT Microprocessor (NXT Brain) per 2-4 students, 1 Computer with NXT-G version 2.0 or  Higher software per student, 1 USB download cable per NXT Brain, Blindfold

Background Information

Hand-eye coordination is the ability of the vision system to coordinate the information received through the eyes to control, guide, and direct the hands in the accomplishment of a given task, such as clapping or pushing a button. Hand-eye coordination uses the eyes to direct attention and the hands to execute a task.

In this activity, students will investigate the effects of blind folding on the number of claps a person is able to complete in a given time.

Learners will be able to

  • Configure a new experiment using NXT Data Logging
  • Collect data using a sound sensor
  • Analyze data on a graph


1. Introduction to Data Logging- How to create an experiment?

2. Hands and Eyes Coordinated – Experimenting with sound

3. Analyzing Data in the Data Logger
