Programming for Kids – Using “Robots Behaving Badly”

with Advanced Technologies for Kids owner Sorin Achim

The most fun that can be packed in an Advanced Technologies for Kids’ program! Students discover why robots are considered “smart” machines and build their own autonomous mobile robotic systems while mastering the basics of programming – each change in a line of code will be immediately observed in the changed behavior of a moving robot. Real sensors, real motors and real program-mobile robot-control CPUs are combined with easy drag-and-drop programming – all with the familiar Lego look. Depending on skills and interest, students will work with different versions of the Lego Robotics System: RCX, NXT, EV3. It all ends with a public presentation and competition (usually a robotic battle) where family and friends are guests of honor. Bring cameras and robotic towels. Bussing from all FCASD Elementary Schools and Dorseyville Middle School is available for this class. Parents and caregivers provide the ride home.
