Lego robotics is a self paced introcuction to programming and mechanical design. While early on in the class instruction will be direct, the majority of the class will be self paced discovery.
Students will use lego kits with small programmable "brains" to tell the robot to move forward, turn, wait for various events just like large industrial robots.
They will also learn mechanical concepts such as tork, friction, mechanical advantage. and gear ratio.
Video tutorials are available online of all the main programming concepts.
