Robotics is the ultimate team activity. All good robots and robotic devices are created by teams of engineers, biologists, artists and programmers to name a few disciplines. Because of this need of integrating many science, engineering and social science skills into a great Robot, it is an ideal discipline to start teaching as young as Kindergarten. It allows students of any ability to be part of a great accomplishment.
Robotics can be very intense, yet extremely fun! Think of the many robotic devices we see in our daily lives and others we only dream of, such as the ‘un-manned’ car to take us places, or the future MARS rovers! But what about this whole group of new nano-robots which eventually may enter our body to heal cancer or other ailments, in short only our imagination is the limit!
To spread the joy of robotics to as many kids as possible, this website is a beginning point to perhaps infect you too with the robotics bug and see what kids can accomplish! Robotics can start simple with Lego WeDo and migrate into to complex robotic machinery using Lego Mindstorm.
I invite you to check back often and see how much progress we are making!
