This was an assignment that my 5th grade teacher gave to us instead of a state report. Every kid was assigned to build a float that could move. Most kids used wagons, skateboards, or R/C cars. I decided to use a cell phone and my LEGOs to power mine. I am a ten year old that designed this. This mini float contains a LEGO Mindstorms Kit and an Android device.
Step 1: Parts Check
In this project, we will use a LEGO Mindstorms Kit, an Android phone running NXT Remote Control, a shoebox, 4-3 inch nails, 1 posterboard, and whatever you need to make your special float. The only tool we will need is a hot glue gun.
