Robotics at Play in Middle School

Grade 6

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