How do you build a robot? Why do you need one? What can you do with it? Join us as we explore the intriguing world of robotics.
The world of robotics is rich and diverse, and there is no doubt that robots help improve our lives in many ways. But what makes robots tick? What "language" do they speak? How do they even know what to do? The Davidson Institute for Science Education's Rudimentary Robotics program gives participants a sneak peek into this fascinating world, including building actual robots!
The class introduces participants to the world of robotics by focusing on outlining computer models of various types of machines, based on the EV3 Mindstorm kit. Along the way, we will acquire programming skills, develop an engineering mindset, expand our imagination, ask questions and be exposed to the variety of areas in which robots have become an integral part of our lives.
The class is based on experiential learning through demos, experiments, games, videos and more.
