Lego Robot Design Studio

Lego Robot Design Studio
This course gives students the opportunity to design, build, and program small, mobile robots using Lego pieces, tiny onboard computers, and a variety of sensors and actuators. In this context, we will explore important concepts from computer science such as structured programming, abstraction, reasoning under uncertainty, real-time control, and elementary robotics. We will also engage other disciplines, including creative design, mechanics, and electronics. The course will culminate with a light-hearted robot talent show featuring the robots created by each team of 3 students. No prior experience with programming or Lego is required.
