The Instructions

Robotics Rumble

Younger students will use educational kits like LEGO, WeDo Robots to create a perfect mixture of fun and imagination that can help expand your young child’s creative mind. This program will introduce students to robot design and computer programming using basic machine principles to create robots capable of performing simple tasks. More advanced students will work in teams to plan, build, test, and modify their own robotic creations! We use LEGO, EV3 or NXT, VEX IQ, and other educational kits that mirror programming language used by engineers and scientists to help creative minds put mathematical concepts to the test as they develop a better knowledge of robotics, computer programming, and teamwork.

Instruction will focus on science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. Students will work to build on their team-building skills as they work to complete fun challenges. These collaborative skills are essential for student success. The advantages of this program include:

Improved creative thinking skills

Improved social skills

Improved problem-solving skills

Improved computer programming skills

Standards

  • (HSF.BF.A2): Write arithmetic and geometric sequences both recursively and with an explicit formula, use them to model situations, and translate between the two forms.*
