  2. Presentation and  timeline rubrics
  3. Study guide on history of robotics (student made)


Procedure:

  1. Allow each group time for presenting their segment of the time line
  2. Follow each presentation with questions and discussion
  3. At completion of all presentations discuss what generalizations can be made about the history of robotics
    1. How long have robots been around?
    2. What century in our history showed the most development in the field of robotics?
    3. How have the inventions or advancements changed over time ?
    4.  Who do you think had the greatest influence in the field of robotics?
