Week 1

September 10, 2019

“Robots from Scratch”

Students will solve problems by designing and coding their own robots using LEGO Mindstorm EV3 robotics kits. After an introduction to the technology behind real world automation, the class will break into groups to build the drive base necessary to program a robot using block coding.


Week 2

September 17, 2019

“Auto(matic)-Bots”

Students will learn the different touch sensor options they can choose to attach to the drive base. The class will be challenged to make their robot move until it hits something, then turn around automatically.


Week 3

September 24, 2019

“Math Bots”

Students will attach a drive arm that can perform any number of tasks. After exploring the options, teams will challenge each other to a fun math game that involves dice and graphing. 


Week 4

October 1, 2019

“Robot Maze Exploration”

Students will learn the engineering techniques required to wire the color sensors in the drive base that operates the robots. After wiring the necessary sensors to follow single colored paths, teams will program their robot to follow the colored path they set while ignoring other teams’ colors. The Teams will then race through mazes and obstacles using their program.
