Grades 5th To 7th
In Launch’s most inventive robotics class, we supply the tools and our students supply the creativity! Kids move beyond LEGO and build real robotic machines – robots that can assume an infinite number of shapes and forms. Using a programmable Hummingbird Duo Microcontroller as the brain, kids set off and use their imagination to add various motors, sensors, LEDs, wheels, and body parts to their designs. Once they have created a moving horse, or perhaps a speedy racecar (or whatever they imagine!), students bring their creations to life by using Snap!, Python, or Java to code their Hummingbird Duos so that their robots do whatever they desire. Most exciting, each day begins with a theme or goal and ends with different robotic designs!
Additional Topics Include: Logic, Problem Solving, Electronics, Coding, Motors/Gears/Sensors
