Students develop skills in robotics as they explore robots as machines. They learn to apply the design process while using Cubelets and Legos to create robots that contribute positively to society. By the end of the kit, they will expand their skills by learning how to code with Bloxter or Python.
Using the Robotify virtual platform, students code robots to navigate virtual worlds. Start off with a Mars rover and graduate to newer environments with more advanced robots. No need for prior knowledge or a teacher with a computer science degree!
