Teaching Robotics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Teaching robotics is a great way to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics.  People of all ages are fascinated by robots moving around an environment seemingly making decisions on its own.  Robotics put academic concepts into a real-world context, which engages and motivates students to learn more.  The study of robotics allows teachers to introduce or reinforce many mathematics, science, and applied physics concepts through hands-on project based lessons.  Studies show that it is highly effective in developing problem solving, creative design, trouble-shooting, and team-work skills.

This presentation will introduce the Lego Mindstorms robotics kit.  We will cover the basics of robotics technology included with the kit including:  input sensors, output motors, microcontroller, and the software programming environment.  We will then work through one of the student activities to demonstrate how to program a robot to complete a task.
