LEGO COMPUTER ROBOTICS: INGENIOUS ENGINEERING (lawson Only)
Entering grades six to eight – Explore the world of mechanical and computer engineering! In this class, students will pair up to build at least four different machines using vintage Apple computers and LEGO Education sets that include motors, lamps, sound, pulleys, gears, axles and sensors. We will hook up the LEGO creations to a Control Lab interface board, then create and write procedures. Control Lab has a text-based programming language and a variety of project choices, making it an excellent option for student learning and skill-building. Students will gain programming and building skills as their robots become more complex in nature. Includes materials and classroom use of computers.
