In this unit, your pupils will be introduced to the world of robotics competitions as they gradually learn the basics of building and programming autonomous robots using sensors. Working together to build an effective competition robot, they'll systematically test and refine programs, using the design process to develop a solution in order to complete missions, all the while developing skills related to collaboration and teamwork along with life skills for their future careers.
Build a Practice Driving Base and make precise and controlled movements.
Use sensors to control motors and interact with objects on the competition field.
Write programs using the Colour Sensor to make the Driving Base autonomous.
Use effective teamwork to build and present a strong competition-ready Driving Base.
Use My Blocks to write organised programs that will help the Advanced Driving Base perform quickly and reliably.
Use controlled motor movements, sensors and organised programs to solve a practice competition challenge in the shortest amount of time.
