Robotics is a hands-on course that teaches how to problem solve while creatively thinking outside the box. Students will complete a variety of tasks using the Lego Mindstorm system. Tasks are broken into two major categories – the Lego build and the application of the programming software on a small Windows computer. There will be some coding involved in the programming of the software to move the robots in a variety of ways. Students will work in groups to brainstorm possibilities, test and modify their robot. Possible projects might be to have your robot navigate through an obstacle course, build catapults or play a game of robot soccer.
