Explore robotics and engineering with the LEGO® Spybotics® smart module which has built-in motors and an infrared light receiver. Build an upright robot, a Mars rover, a turtlebot, crawling spiderbot, and hopping frog. Control your creations with a remote, maneuvering around obstacles and playing games and missions. The missions teach students how robots are used to solve real-world problems.
As young engineers, the students also learn how motors work, how wheels and axles create movement, and how to design with LEGO components.
You'll also learn about robot coding as students press buttons on a programmable Robot Mouse® to guide it in games and missions. Give instructions to a programmable Robot Mouse® by pressing its directional movement buttons. Play soccer and help our mousebot get through mazes! Robot Mouse® is a hands-on, team-oriented programming activity which builds coding, logical thinking, sequencing, estimation, and problem solving skills.
By the end of the week, students will have gained knowledge in building and operating both remote-control and programmable robots while having tons of fun!
