Exploring Robotics

Robots have been a subject of fascination and entertainment for generations, both in fiction and in real life. In Exploring Robotics, students learn about how actual robots move, see, touch, and hear. Guided by teachers, students will apply theory to design, build, and program their own robotic creations.

Students will learn:
  • How robots accomplish tasks
  • Simple mechanical systems
  • Programming controllers


This course is open to students entering Grades 1 through 3.
