There are several units that Lessons may be pulled from. In all lessons the students will be presented with a challenge or problem. They will design, build and test solutions. Here are some unit descriptions:
This LEGO® Robotics: Da Vinci Robots curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. The robots in this unit will approach some of the designs of Leonardo da Vinci, taking a unique perspective by applying robotics principles to the challenges da Vinci faced.
During the LEGO® Robotics: EnviroBots, students design and program robots to help accomplish environmentally friendly tasks. By creating robots that can transfer nuclear waste, mine raw minerals, and deliver food and goods more efficiently, they will be sure to contribute to a more sustainable environment.
This LEGO® Robotics: Mission Mars curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. Throughout this course the students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized to explore a distant planet.
This LEGO® Robotics: Ocean Missions curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of robotics in an interesting and engaging way. The goal is to teach students about the building and programming aspects of robotics as it relates to real-world issues in ocean exploration.
