Robot Engineering Vol. 1 – Introduction to Mobile Robotics

This multimedia curriculum is an ideal tool to introduce robots into the middle or high school classroom. It provides teachers with an engaging program to teach STEM concepts utilizing the LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robots. Students learn how to program basic robot behaviors using motors and rotation, sound, light, touch and ultrasonic sensors. Fifteen in-depth research lessons are based on real-world robots. Step-by-step videos teach students how to use the programming language, build robots, basic robot behavior, use of sensors, robot competition, etc.

Robot Engineering Vol. 2 – Guided Research

The second series in the Robotics Engineering line of products. Robotics Engineering Vol. 2 – Guided Research takes students through several STEM-based projects, and also goes through the entire engineering process using an Engineering design projects. Programming lessons are included that teach students about programming using the more advanced blocks in the NXT programming language.

Robot Science

Use LEGO Robots to teach scientific principles around speed, heat, sound, and color. Students will design and develop robotic prototypes that will use powerful features built into the NXT to collect data and report it back in the form of graphs and tables. Students will use this data to form conclusions that cement their understanding of these important and technological concepts. The culminating engineering activity is a robot bridge inspection project.

ROBOTC Curriculum of TETRIX and LEGO MINDSTORMS

Teaching is a craft and every teacher does it differently. This curriculum is designed to teach “engineering process” and “programming”. The Robotics Academy has developed this curriculum to help teachers to teach and students to learn those competencies. The Robotics Academy is committed to helping teachers use robotics to teach science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

ROBOTC Graphical

ROBOTC Graphical is an intuitive icon-based drag and drop programming language that is designed for beginning programmers.  This environment enables teachers to begin to teach students about sequencing, conditional statements, sensor feedback, and loops. This environment is perfect as an introductory programming language, but is not designed for intermediate or advanced programmers.

ROBOTC Natural Language

ROBOTC Natural Language places basic motor commands like moving forward and backward into easy to use functions that empower the student to quickly enable a simple robot behavior. Natural language also enables the programmer to call sensor commands like “untilRotations” which control how far the robot travels, or untilDark, which controls how long the robot will execute a behavior. Natural language provides a scaffolded programming environment between ROBOTC Graphical and full ROBOTC.
