Robot Design Investigation & Challenge

1.5-hour experience that includes content-specific instruction and related hands-on activities.

Students sharpen their critical thinking and problem-solving skills to build modular robots. Working in teams, they will use the Science and Engineering Practices to develop inventions that sense, compute, and act upon the world around them. As students design their robots, they actually build a program through hands-on coding. This class culminates in a race that challenges each group to create the smartest and fastest robot.
