Real World Vehicles
In this unit, your students will strengthen their design engineering skills by solving complex the real-world problems of creating robotic real-life vehicles. Students will integrate multiples subject skills as they analyze major global challenges, elaborate qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints and break large problems down into smaller ones. They will also develop and use a series of test cases to verify that a solution performs according to its design specifications. Students will strengthen their communication skills as they present information, findings, and supporting evidence clearly, concisely, and logically.
Make a Speed Control System
Design a cruise control system that changes the speed of a vehicle with the touch of a button.
Make an Autonomous Robotic Explorer
Design, build, and program a robotic system that follows a path and communicates its position at least twice along the way.
