Robot Inventor: Plan, design, and build your own robot
In this club, students identify a problem that can be solved with robotics, create a plan, design, test and redesign their own robot!
Students will dive deep into the engineering design process by being an active participant and developing their own robot that serves a specific and identified purpose. Students think about not only why we use robots but how we interact with them – the more natural the interaction is with a robot, the more likely we are to use it. A lot goes into designing and building a robot and through this club students will create their own robot that they will share on the last day. In addition to inventing their own robot, students dive into the fundamentals of AI by participating in an AI activity.
