This is an intermediate level LEGO Robotics and Scratch 2.0 class for middle school students. We will use LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Robotics for progressively challenging robotics and coding projects, with an emphasis on the more complex programming capabilities of the EV3 software e.g., blocks, data, wires, files, and variables. Our robotics and engineering builds will include vehicles, launchers, wind turbines, battle bots and many open team challenges. At mid-year the class will transition to intermediate visual programming with Scratch 2.0 from M.I.T. Emphasis will be given to learning to use Procedures, Variables, String Processing and Lists. Additionally, we will incorporate a unit using Scratch 2.0 and Raspberry Pi with Java to program LEGO robotics models to move through simple challenges as further exploration of robotics and computer programming.
