Are  you in 4th or 5th grade, ready to launch into robotics with no previous experience?

This class is for you. In Robo Challenge I, instead of working with step-by-step building directions and sample programs, we’ll start each class with a programming challenge, set by our instructors. After meeting that challenge, we’ll use LEGO® robotics kits to design bots to go with our programs. Our instructors will be there to help you achieve success – presenting different problems every week or two.

How will you solve them? With what kind of sensor? Using what kind of sensor?  What type of gearing mechanism?  Some of the robots you’ll design include:  a wing flapping creature, a catapult, a crash-avoidance vehicle, and a hexbug nano catcher!
