You Call This a Robot?

Discovery Experience 1 - You Call This a Robot?Robotics Learning Objective: The students will learn how basic parts of a robot work by building a robot using either a (1) Lego robotics kit, (2) a VEX robotics kit, or (3) other material.

Note to Teacher:  This curriculum will be designed with Lego Robots. There are several reasons for this:  (1) Lego robots are easier to use both for new students and new teachers (2) the programming is simpler, and (3) it is easier to use the sensors and incorporate them into challenges.  If the teacher has a more advanced class and is used to VEX robots, they can use the VEX kits to do virtually the same thing. The building and programming are more complex, but at the same time VEX allows students to be more creative and can also incorporate driver operated tasks where the robot is controlled by radio control.
