Mooove on up to this introductory coding and robotics course that sets the standard for in-class elementary CS programs! With strategic scaffolding built into nearly every inch, teachers can successfully advance ALL students in various aspects of STEM using a discovery-based approach. Targeted skill-building lessons are paired with open-ended project work to deepen understanding while developing critical thinking. Guided classroom activities and discussions take it a step further by supporting creativity, collaboration, and communication.
Includes teachers’ guide, reflective questions, suggested solutions, project rubrics and exemplars, slide deck, learning progress heatmap, quizzes, knowledge base, and help desk.
Who this course is for: Teachers and students grades 5-6, without prior experience in coding or robotics. Short, structured missions and flexible pacing make the curriculum engaging for a range of beginner learning levels.
Self-paced, gamified activities with real-time feedback and step-by-step instructions
Learn how hardware and software interact by controlling a robot manually first, then with code.
Develop debugging skills while controlling the distance that the robot moves forwards and backwards.
Understand the mechanics of a screw turn by moving the wheels in opposite directions.
Write a program to help the robot navigate to its target. Learn how sensors help in making decisions.
Design your own robot! Think about ways it could be helpful to kids your age.
Use the Gyroscope, a sensor that measures rotational speed, to turn the robot to a precise angle.
Use the Repeat block to design, improve, and code algorithms that use repeated patterns.
Students learn to use conditionals (If statements) and navigate missions based on the Color sensor.
Students learn to use the Encoder to measure precise drive distances and variables to store the data in
Everything you need to flow through each lesson, including: clear objectives, questions for reflection, instructional videos, and more.
Each session is guided by a presentation that covers the entire session from theory to practice, including: scientific background, examples and sample code, discussion guidelines, play time activities, and speaker notes.
You can quickly navigate to all the solutions for each lesson in just a few clicks.
So you can see how individual students compare to one another, identify specific topics they may be struggling with, and recommend corrective actions.
Get answers to all your subject matter questions and find your way around the platform.
Put on your thinking caps and buckle up! Cyber Robotics 102 continues the gamified ride through the world of computer science and robots - this time around with an extensive focus on variables, robotics-related algorithms, and physics in a changing obstacle environment. Promotes critical thinking, i
Beep, boop, beep beep! This course guides students to discover computer science and robotics concepts by programming their own virtual robot through a series of gamified missions.
It’s time to pack your bags and dive into the world of STEM, coding, and robotics—no experience necessary!
