Students design and observe the behavior of their models. They reflect and re-design the model functionality and present their findings. Students build the models together, each focusing on their part of the model - strengthening their 21st-century skills in collaboration and communication.


Advance Robotics Classes:

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3

AggressivePossibleCockatiel-size_restricted.gif

Students design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components. By using hands-on robotics, students will gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications.

The solution enables students to understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models; build, test troubleshoot and revise designs to improve robot performance; Gain practical, hands-on experience using mathematical concepts such as estimating and measuring distance, time and speed.
