Class Description: This class is for older elementary students who enjoy working with LEGO and computers. The year is divided equally between engineering builds and intermediate robotics using material from LEGO Education. Students use LEGO Motorized Machines sets for progressively challenging, investigative units on Forces and Motion, Energy, Measurements, and Powered Machines. At mid-year we transition to LEGO robotics, using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 kits to build complex robotics structures including motorized vehicles, walking mechanisms, and standard battle bots, and learn the fundamentals of programming the Mindstorms EV3 for a variety of partner and team challenges.
