The Instructions

Day 1

The session aims to deliver the knowledge of robot 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 means that the kids will have a problem and they need to solve it in a practical way by making their own projects.

 

At the beginning of the lesson introduce a problem to them, and ask them about the possible solutions. I recommend mentioning something related to the sustainable development goals – SDG- if possible such as topics related to health, education, climate change, food, etc.

 

Tell them a story about NASA’s curiosity and perseverance robots.
