In this FULL COLOR PRINTED introductory robotics course textbook, students will use their creativity and teamwork to design, create, and build full-fledged LEGO®: robots that are programmed to complete tasks by using computers. Each class will promote experiences and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) areas using LEGO®: in an interactive, hands-on way. Students will program the robots that they build using light, touch, ultrasonic, and sound sensors to perform mission tasks, and learn all about the science concepts and technology used in the field of robotics. While learning about engineering and robotics applications, the students will develop critical and higher-level thinking skills to solve problems by working cooperatively to plan, construct, and complete missions. Students will learn how to do age-appropriate graphical computer programming using NXT-G while they expand their knowledge of robotic utilizations and task solving. This course is a fun way to learn robotics and critical thinking, and is a must for any aspiring engineer or young inventor!!
