Robotics is a class that is an interdisciplinary branch of computer science and engineering. This semester we will utilize the Lego Spike Prime kits as a platform to master skills like critical thinking, time management, creativity and problem solving. Students will develop ideas, execute them, and apply them in real life. It involves following directions, coding on computers as well as building actual robots. In an effort to make learning more engaging and entertaining, we will focus on different skills like following the Prime’s step by step guide, building a robot from looking at an image, racing robots and changing the coding to help achieve different goals. The students will work up to designing and presenting a robot that solves a mathematical equation faster than human, by the end of the semester.
