Our course will introduce young, aspirational students to the world of robotics by teaching them the basics of robotics building, programming, structural design, and applications of robotics through fun Lego robotics sets. Over the course of 6 classes, they will design and build simple machines using lego kits, solve a range of problems through programming the models they have build, and participate in competitions that will open them up to the new fields of computer programming and technology. We will have two groups, one for younger kids (aged 6-8) who will use the We do robotics kit, and one for older kids (aged 9-12) who will use the EV3 robotics kit.

 

We Do Robotics (6-8) Schedule

 

1. Introduction Day: introduce kids to robots, explain the basics of coding and building

2. “Moving Satellite” and “Cooling Fan”: introduces building and coding the motor

3. “Spy Robot” and “Smart Racer”: introduces integrating and using the motion sensors

4. “Robust Structures”: Investigating what characteristics of a building would help make it resistant to an earthquake, using an earthquake simulator constructed from LEGO bricks.

5. “Prevent Flooding”: Design an automatic LEGO floodgate to control water according to various precipitation patterns.

6. Competition

EV3 Robotics (9-12) Schedule

1. Introduction Day: introduce kids to robots, explain the basics of coding and building

2. “Object Detection”: Design ways to avoid accidents between vehicles and objects in the road.

3. “Acceleration of Gravity”: The Free Fall learning module highlights the time-distance equation when an object is accelerating.

4. “Bumper Car Race”: Using the Touch and Color sensors

5. “Line Detection”: Design ways to improve driving safety by helping to prevent drivers from falling asleep and causing an accident.

6. Competition
