The Robotics Discovery curriculum is designed to introduce robotics to 8 years old children starting with Lego EV3 Mindstorms platform. Students will use a variety of sensors (Color Sensor, Touch Sensor, Ultrasonic Distance Sensor, Gyro Sensor) to program robot platforms to accomplish given challenges. Students follow series of courses to learn basics of robot programming using a simple drag-and-drop software after which they have an opportunity to join Exceeders Curriculum which begins with text-based programming.

JR104: RoboGames

 

Prerequisites: new 8 year old students, no experience required!

The first course of the Discovery Robotics program (age 8) is JR104 RoboGames which has students learn how to use the computers (rather than IPADs) to program more advanced Lego EV3 Mindstorms robots. Various Olympic-style challenges are designed to teach students how to program the robot to drive and activate various mechanisms.
