The World of Robotics I program utilizes guided and open-ended lessons, including continue-at-home activities, to help children/students to:
In the first unit – Robot Sports Camp – students get their first introduction to the EV3 Controller, LEGO Education MINDSTORMS EV3 Software, motors and sensors. They will learn how to build robot vehicles that can get in action mode by pressing a few buttons. They will create robot sports stars, design and run robots in exciting obstacle and race courses.
In the second unit – Robot Science Park – if a funky fish doesn’t bother you, this series of activities will be a treat. The students build and program all sorts of robotic creatures that are kept in the Robot Science Park. Students extend their building and programming skills by focusing on mimicking animal behaviors in a creative and highly entertaining way.
The third unit – Robot City Life – is based on living in a robot city. In Robot City Life, students will be involved in making a challenging flight simulator, becoming a DJ using a programmable scratch-box and helping design robots for different kinds of city purposes.
In the fourth unit – Robot Design Lab – the students practice and refine all the skills they have learned so far as they plan, build, and program robots that will be put on show. Students will build a smart card reader and make programs that can decode different codes. This unit allows students to work in greater depth on a project over a longer period of time. It also gives them an opportunity to practice performance skills. And last, parents get to see what their children are achieving.
After the completion of the World of Robotics training, student will be granted entrance into the Robotics Club where they will be challenged with annual competitions, to learn how to work as a team, and to furnish their programming and engineerring skills.
The annual competitions are: WRO-World Robot Oiympiad, FLL-FIRST LEGO League
