Cyber Robotics 101 Advanced

This third and last course in the Cyber Robotics 101 series cements the foundational coding and robotics knowledge picked up in previous courses, while introducing advanced new concepts such as: color sensor, robotic arm, ultrasonic used for radar, and coding for control flow. Kids learn to support autonomous decision-making (programming the robot to react to its environment based on sensor input) and must demonstrate powerful use of these hard skills and 21st Century soft skills (creativity, problem solving, critical thinking) to succeed in the final Challenge Missions pack.

Who this course is for: Kids ages 10-14 who have completed Cyber Robotics 101 Basics and Cyber Robotics 101 Essentials. Suitable for progressed independent learners or parent/tutor-led learning.
