EAST LAKE COMMUNITY LIBRARY ROBOT PROGRAM!
East Lake Community Library is offering a ROBOT learning experience for middle and high school aged boys and girls. Each student is paired with a mentor from the technical fields of programming, engineering and manufacturing processes. There are three levels which should give each student the chance to expand upon earlier experiences and grow in knowledge in the building/programming/operations of ROBOTS. These levels are: Introduction, Intermediate, and Advanced.
1. INTRODUCTION level consists of the initial exposure to the LEGO MINDSTORM ROBOT education kit and the LEGO NXT-G programming language. The student will be coached in the development of both mechanical and programming functions used with the LEGO MINDSTORM kit.
2. INTERMEDIATE level consists of expanding the lessons learned in the Intro level and will learn to program with “C” programming language. Also, higher degree of difficulty will be used to enrich the student’s understanding of ROBOT functions and sensors.
3. ADVANCED level will be the crowning achievement for each student where they will be working in a team environment to solve “real” world problems in ROBOT kinematics such as ‘Walking’, ‘Grasping’, and ‘Navigation’.
