Mis en avant

This blog presents the interdisciplinary project of the 2B class at LP2I (Lycée Pilote Innovant International) in Jaunay Clan (France). The theme is Robotics and students work on this project during Sciences of engineering, English and ICT lessons.

In the first part of this six months’ project students did some research on the history of robots and they learnt how to program a Lego NXT robot.

They recorded some radio shows on our school’s radio.


In the second part, students discovered the use of robots in movies (with two great cinematographic icons) and literature (they worked on a couple of Asimov’s stories). Meanwhile they built and programmed an NXT robot of their choice.


You can find in this blog students’ articles about their achievements.

This interdisciplinary project is a part of the “Industry & Robotics” Comenius project granted by Agence Europe-Education-Formation France. Students have the opportunity to work and to exchange with Comenius project’s partners from Italy, Spain and Malta.

an example of operating robot:


This project has allowed us to learn a lot of things which will be very useful in our studies. We are really interested in robots so we all liked this project.

Of course we have improved our English too and learnt some vocabulary in this topic that we’ll can often use.

We really enjoyed ourselves in this project and we hope to begin another one as interesting as this one.


The robot

Our robot is called ARM_robot . We have chosen this name because the three servomotors look like an arm.

We have added two NXT boxes because one box can have only 3 servomotors while we needed 5 servomotors. 3 servomotors are connected to the arm box and two motors to the chassis box.

Our group selected caterpillar tracks for the look. A color sensor is positioned ahead, it scans the colors of the brick.

The NXT chassis box is controlled with Bluetooth connection from a phone.


The arm is controlled with the NXT program.

Our Writ’Robot

After 5months of work, we fnish it ! Our robot is able to write « LPII », the name of our school. We draw letters by programming, we had to find when the robot has to up the pen, down it, turn (P), go in front, go back… It was so difficult to do it.

The Star Wars story :

Star Wars is the story of a guy who fights against the Empire.
A first trilogy which starts by the 4th movie and a prelogy 1, 2, 3, respectively, in 1999, 1999 and released in 2005.

7th January

On the 7th January, we made the header of the blog.


We have also finished the articles and we did soe more tests of our robot.



Racmlx Litterature

It deals with people. Alfred Leaning, Peter Bogert, Milton Ashe and Susan Calvin are sitting around a table talking about a robot named 34RB who is mind ready.

The robot told Susan that Milton loved her, and after something happened to them. So Lanning felt hurt because the robot lied to him. Actually, he lied to everybody.

We don’t like this story because we think it’s very boring; and took great lengths to describe the scene of debate. And the characters spend a lot of time discussing the line about what to make with the Robot Herbie.

Moreover when the robot said “He loves you” to Dr.Calvin for a minute Dr Calvin did not speak. She replied “You’re wrong”, “But I never thought that” the psychologist stopped. suddenly, she looked up. A girl visted him here; “She was pretty blonde and slim; Who was she?”

We don’t know why they are talking about love. This is incomprehensible for us.

Conclusion …

During this MID session we learnt to built a robot and to program it. Our english vocabulary is more rich, particularly in technical terms.
Our robot can write words, we have just programmed it to write ” LPII ” – our schools name.
During this MID project we did a radio show. In the radio show we made a debate about the use of humanoid at home and spoke about a Japanese rock band called Z-Machines.
We also worked on robotics in general, the history and origin of robots, the first book and author … We wrote some articles text about our work.

Liars from Isaac Asimov

1. Herbie can read and he is a matematical genious.

2 . Herbies lies to everyone because he was created not do hurt human.

3. The robot just wants to answer what they want to hear.

4. Susan Calvin destroyed Herbie because he’s a liar. She accused him of lying.

Alfred Lanning, Peter Bogert, Milton Ashe are mathematicians who have creted a robot called Herbie. This robot can read, he’s a methematical genius and he can’t hurt anybody. All the doctors think that Herbie has a problem. Everybody interrogated the robot to discover the problem.The problem of the robot is that he lies all the time, and to everybody. Susan Calvin makes him crazy bacause she asks him a problem which he is not able to aswer . Consequently, she destroys his brain.

Today it was the last session. We finished the blog ( the conclusion) and we inserted photos.
