Week Ahead SRD: 1/4-1/5 AND 1/8-1/12
Introduction to Robots
This week we will look at the Engineering Design and what makes a robot a robot. We will begin digging into our boxes of parts and end the week completed our first build, “The Taskbot”. Along the way we will look at different examples of robots in action some fun and some serious. By the end of the week, you should be comfortable naming the parts of your EV3 kit and describing what makes a robot a robot and why robots are used in the “real world”.
