RoboBattles

Program ● Robotics ● EV3 ● Grades 3-8

A robot is a device that is designed and programmed to perform a task either autonomously or with human input. Robots typically come in two forms: those resembling humans or role-specific robots, such as NASA space probes and Mars Rovers. Robots are generally used to perform either dangerous or monotonous tasks. The challenge facing robotics engineers is that the robot knows only what is written into the program. The design of the robot must also be capable of performing the task at hand. In this unit, students will experience both the designing and programming roles of being a robotics engineer.

Robo Battles curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world of not only building, but also programming basic robots. Throughout this course the students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized to engage in various battle challenges.

Tanks

What better vehicle is there for ground battle? These vehicles are highly armored with large guns and equipped with treads to allow them to navigate almost all terrain. During this lesson students will convert their robot into a tank and battle against obstacles in a maze.

The War Begins

Students will learn how to construct their base robot which will be used throughout the robotics courses. They will learn how to program their robots to complete basic tasks during this first lesson.

Tug of War

Students will learn how to construct their base robot which will be used throughout the robotics courses. They will learn how to program their robots to complete basic tasks during this first lesson.
