What is the tension in a string during a tug-of-war? Gary Garber of Boston University Academy, a Boston high school, created a lesson to show an interesting way to teach Newton’s third law using Vernier Dual-Range Force sensors, NI LabVIEW software, and LEGO NXT Mindstorms. The LEGO NXT Robots do the tug-of-war and the students wrote the programs in LabVIEW to gather Force Data and display it on the NXT robots.
Garber and his class won Notable Entry in the 2013 Vernier Engineering Contest for their work.
