What? It doesn’t always work as you expect it to?

How do you usually solve a new challenge?

Build a Rhino!


This build has two parts:

  • Rhino's Body

  • Rhino's Head

Make it Move

SPIKE Extra resources Going Distance Step03-Program - en-gb

Place a LEGO® brick 1 metre from the rhino's nose.

Play the program and see what happens.

Stop at the brick!


Keeping the LEGO brick 1 metre from the rhino's nose, adjust your program to make the rhino stop as close as possible to the brick, without touching it.

Ready for a challenge?


Place the LEGO brick 120 cm from the rhino's nose.

You have one chance to program the rhino to stop as close as possible to the brick, without knocking it over.

Good luck!

Can you make the rhino stop when its nose hits a ’wall’?


Create 2 programming stacks:

  • One without a sensor
  • One using the Force Sensor (the rhino’s nose)

Play the programming stacks separately and describe how your rhino’s reactions change.

Think about how you did.

It’s good to know that you've solved that challenge!
