I’ve had the pleasure to be the supervisor for the 2nd year students at IT University in Gothenburg. The students decided early on to build a Mars lander, using LEGO.
I will not spend too much time on elaborating on that but I got a couple of links from the demo and a video that I want people to see. I think that the video and the photos pretty much captures the work they did. Oh yeah, and what’s best, I am in the video. The skinny bearded man that tries to hide (and fails) from the camera.
Here’s the video: http://animoto.com/play/F1xXwDkjRZSGeMEh1qkQCg
After the examination (of the students above) I will focus on the Advanced Free Software Tools (temp info available here and here). Hopefully I will see a few of them again. We have some pretty interesting projects going on with a municipality near Gothenburg that I am looking forward to start working on with the students in the course.
