Building robots in Middle School

photo5This school year, robotics is taught in 6th and 7th grade this year.  The main goal for the class is to take the knowledge students have and to teach them to be able to stretch their imagination and knowledge to go beyond their comfort zone with each project.  Each student works at their own level based on the knowledge coming into the class.

We begin by learning the basic steps of learning to program the basic robot.  This is followed by using software to program the robots from their laptops to preform directed instructions and movements the students create based on their skills.  This class is teacher directed in a classroom designed for this curriculum.
