Robotics and Programming Level-1 is designed for children ages 9 and up to learn and develop skills and knowledge in robotics. Each Robotics kit contains CPU, DC Motors, Sensors and many more to have students build their own robots with bolts and nuts. Programming of the robot is done with a drag and drop program in GUI environment for easy understanding and enjoyment. Each student will build 10-12 robots throughout the semester and complete a variety of robotics related challenges. At the end of the semester, students will present his or her work in groups in an open forum. This class will be taught in a mini-PBL (Problem Based Learning) style. The instructor will not only teach students technical skills of programming and building a robot but also inspire their creativity, guide them to think critically, and foster a safe atmosphere for students to learn effective communication and collaboration skills.
