In this unit, your students 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, and life skills for their future careers.
Training Camp 1: Driving Around
Build a Practice Driving Base and make precise and controlled movements.
Training Camp 2: Playing with Objects
Use sensors to control motors and interact with objects on the competition field.
Training Camp 3: Reacting to Lines
Write programs using the Color Sensor to make the Driving Base autonomous.
Assembling an Advanced Driving Base
Use effective teamwork to build and present a strong competition-ready Driving Base.
My Code, Our Program
Use My Blocks to write organized programs that'll help the Advanced Driving Base perform quickly and reliably.
Time for an Upgrade
Build motorized tools that can help solve competition tasks.
Use controlled motor movements, sensors, and organized programs to solve a practice competition challenge in the shortest amount of time.
