Robotics at Play in Middle School

In a recent Design Technology and Engineering class, sixth graders built a controllable cart with motors and sensors, then programmed the carts to detect, avoid and go around an obstacle. The design challenge was part of a lesson in robotics and automation using Lego robotics kits.

Meanwhile, seventh graders expanded on the sixth grade lessons by embarking on a more complex multi-day design challenge using the Lego robotics kits. “The challenges give students creative license to modify their builds to fit their solution,” said Design Technology and Engineering faculty Tedd Landgraf.
