Delve into the world of robotics in this hands-on introduction to LEGO® building elements.
Instructors will allow for students to learn through experimentation and gentle guidance using the LEGO® Mindstorms Education Core Set and software. The students’ experience will culminate in a final challenge that integrates complex building skills and basic programming. For example, teams may be asked to construct and program a robot that mimics an animal or an everyday object. Participants will be using an iconic programming language. This software, combined with the planned curriculum, creates a fun, fast-paced and exciting introduction to robotics!
