Burglar Alarm

Goal: You have a valuable treasure to protect! Make a WeDo burglar alarm to keep it safe and sound. If someone gets too close to you†r treasure, the alarm goes off, scaring the intruder away. As an extra challenge, can you figure out how to program the alarm to reset itself after it goes off? 


Start date: October 1, 2014
Due date: October 31, 2014

Rules: Your alarm must use a WeDo sensor. You can only use the sensors and motors from the WeDo kit. However, you are welcome to use multiple WeDo kits, additional LEGO pieces, and non-LEGO materials. Tips for using WeDo motors can be found here: Design for Motion. For tips on using sound with the WeDo program, check out this snippet: Programming Sound.
