Roads for Hexbugs

During mentoring this week, the Electricianeers helped guide the Ladybugs to build a road with a bridge for a Hexbug. Hexbugs were designed to give children a positive experience with robotics along with having bug like attributes that make them life-like. 

These bugs have a mind of their own, so students worked to create barriers on their roads to keep the Hexbugs under control.

This is a version of a Hexbug.
