VEX IQ robotics seesions.
this is a 4 days program, each day participants will have two hours class to learn about robotics, electronics and coding using VEX IQ robotic kit.
Onsite session aims to deliver the knowledge of robot's control and the history behind robotics, in order to introduce the participant to the ways robots interact and behave with the surrounding environment through sensors and actuators.
This lesson has been developed based on project/ problem based learning, that’s mean that the kids will have a problem and they need to solve it in a practical way by making their own projects. In the beginning of the lesson introduce a problem to them, and ask them about the possible solutions. I recommend to mention something related to the sustainable development goals – SDG- if it possible such as topics related to health, education, climate change, food, etc.
Ice braking activity.
Let’s find out what we already know.
Ask participant to

•Can you give examples of robots that you already know about?
