Introduction to Robotics (Robotics Programming Age 9-13)
Robotics fundamentals for middle schoolers! Students will learn to build and code robots using a block-based programming language. Teaching is done from the very basics, so no previous programming experience is required. Students will learn robotics concepts like motor control and using sensors. Various joint motors, grippers, wheels, distance sensors, touch sensors and motions sensors will be used. The classes will progress from simple tasks like reacting to touch/motion sensors to complex projects like navigating obstacles while picking up objects.
