Future Possibilities

Robotics Unit - Robotics: Future Possibilitiesnb1The robotics unit uses hands-on experiences to motivate students to develop STEM skills. ELA skills involving technical reading, writing, and communication are embedded throughout the unit.  The robotics unit contains the following four major discovery experiences:

  1. You Call This a Robot?
    In this discovery experience students use LEGO robot materials to review robot basics and expand their understanding of how robots work.
  2.  I Am Getting a Sense of This
    Students refine their understanding of programming and sensors in this Discovery Experience.
  3. The Amazing Maze
    In this Discovery Experience students use what they’ve learned about programming and sensors to program a robot to negotiate a maze.  This section also contains many extension activities for more experienced students.
  4. Building and Marketing a Robot Prototype
    Students build a prototype robot that fills a niche or need in our world.  They learn basic marketing skills as they develop a plan to promote and “sell” their robot.

Future Opportunities Expo is an optional Discovery Experience in the robotic unit.  For this experience students participate in a robotics “expo” to become more aware of future job opportunities in robotics and other technology related fields.
