Students will build, modify and program LEGO Mindstorms™ robots. Each day students will be presented with a new challenge. Students will work individually with a Modesto Academy Mindstorms Robotics kit. Please note: Kits are the property of Modesto Academy and will remain in the classroom.
Mindstorms I- Beginning Program (basic movement & program flow) simple robot design to allow basic programming with different sensors. Mindstorms II- More advanced programming with data wires. This class includes a stronger emphasis on programming.
Mindstorms III- While this class includes advanced programming skills; its emphasis is more on building. This class may be taken after successful completion of Mindstorms I and is intended for the student who has a higher interest in building rather than programming.
Prerequisite: Students must have taken Mindstorms I before II or III. Students may take I and then skip II to take III. Advancement from Beginning to Continuing class with instructor approval.*age 8 with instructor approval
