Course Description


Elementary Robotics (K5 - 5th grade)

Build, code & play with Robots! This class starts with 8 weeks of robotics where we'll lead students through building with gears, axles, dc motors, switches, IR sensors, LEDs, servo motors and the Arduino mainboard. Each week we'll build a different robot and use those robots in an activity or competition. Examples include the Knight Robot for battle bots, Flag Football bot, Soccer Bot and Wand Following Bot. As students become adept at building robots, we'll then introduce coding concepts.  Students will learn how to use loops, wait statements, IF-THEN-ELSE statements and more to control their robots. Each coding class will have a challenge that will teach our young engineers how to use Scratch coding to make their robots complete a task autonomously.
