If necessary, take the assembly apart and start over. You’ve got plenty of time and you’re having fun, right? Are you happy with the ExploroBot’s body? Congratulations! You’re half done with the ExploroBot. We’re going to move on to the third section, which is a little longer and a little more complex due to the number of parts being used. Just take your time on this section and enjoy the building process. Remember my advice—if you get stuck, just take a deep breath and remind yourself that this is fun.
I’ll answer that question in Chapter 6. Just try and always keep an open mind when thinking about the obstacles your robot will face. Examine the robot’s environment, its tasks, and its overall goal as you start to brainstorm about how you’ll solve the problem. And that’s what you’re going to do next. You’re going to brainstorm about this bot’s design, components, and overall appearance in this next Design Journal section—Mindstorm. Mindstorm Convenient name for this section, huh? The Lego Mindstorms NXT robotics kit uses that unique word, Mindstorms.
If you do hit a roadblock and just can’t figure out how to move forward, try taking a look at the next few steps. Sometimes another figure will show the ExploroBot from a different angle and you’ll see the solution. Enjoy the building process and realize that if your final bot doesn’t look exactly like the one in this chapter, that’s okay. Remember: getting the bot to work and solving the challenge is your main goal. ■Note If you modify or try to create your own version of the ExploroBot (or any other bot in this book), please take a picture and e-mail it to me.
