About this course

Summary 

  1. Subject(s): Robotics, Coding, Hardware 
  2. Unit of Study: Introduction / Basics
  3. Objective: This series is to inspire young people to become creative engineers and learn to develop or perhaps build their own projects at home and for schools.

Description

This is a ROBOTICS course for absolute beginners. The training is for students who have little or no technical knowledge, that the training class we have provided over at the Moco Valley, Will be put together in a course that assumes absolutely no prior technical background, a course that they can use to build up their hidden talents and uplift their aspirations to become engineers and nation developers in the future.They will have fun with robots and some waste materials in the house or school. In this Robotics course, we will try to answer questions from students. This course is about having fun building small Lego robots and later robots using scraps, finding out how to command them to smile and speak, travel in straight and curved lines, and how to follow the edge of a line.This course series includes about 2 hours a session of training.

 

Materials & Resources

We will share resources and materials on the MITT page for every episode on the MITT Resource directory

  1. Instructional Materials. 
  2. Resources.
  • Black electrical tape
  • Hard, flat, blank surface approximately 4′ x 4′ in size.
  • Yard or Meter stick
  • Five 3″ tubes (e.g. toilet paper rolls, PVC pipes, etc…)
  • Hardcover books (or other objects to act as obstacles)
  • Plastic drink container ( or other containers)
  • Colored items (to use with color sensor)

Assessment

After every session a link will be provided to a short Quiz for assessment on previous sessions. After which you will be given a link to watch the previous session on The MITT Website.
