Advanced Lego Robotics with Scratch
Using LEGO Mindstorms components to build and program more advanced projects, students will build robots that travel, monitor sensors and use advanced programming. Students ages 9-14 will build a variety of increasingly sophisticated robots like the Strider (a six-legged creature), the Rock Climber (a climbing vehicle), the Brick Sorter (a robot that sorts by color and size, the Robotic Arm (a mover and picker), and the exciting Humanoid Robot. This class presents numerous building and programming challenges throughout the week. Students are encouraged to think creatively and to apply what they have learned to develop the skills essential in creating their own robot masterpieces. This year for the first time ever we will be coding our robots using scratch.
