Build a Robot 2017


AN INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER PROGRAMMING AND ENGINEERING

Based on LEGO® Education Design Engineering Projects, this robotics course will develop problem solving and lateral thinking skills.

You will be applying science, technology, engineering and mathematics to build and program LEGO © Mindstorms robots (EV3).

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

This course mimics the design and engineering process used by scientists and engineers in industry today.

You will be challenged to design, build and program robots, adding sensors to make them smarter and control their behaviour. Students will learn to apply science, technology and maths, to engineer their solutions.

No prior programming skills are required for this course.
