They even learn to observe and analyze and enter their testing data on worksheets. This is a popular class where students actively build, explore and learn while having Fun! (Ages 4 and 5)
In this Hands-on program from Science Cosmos, 1st Grade Students learn concepts related to robotics and programming. Working as budding robotic engineers students use the WeDo Lego Robotics platform and build lego models bases on many themes that they can relate to, such as dancing birds, flying, soccer. Students work in Pairs and build Lego Robot models featuring working motors and sensors and they program their models using a graphic drag and drop software interface. Subsequently they modify the model’s behavior by changing the construction of the model or the software program. This is a popular class that is enjoyable for a budding robot engineer. (Ages 5 and 6)
