Robotic Mod Takes on New Challenges
Middle School students have been busy combining their math, science, technology and engineering skills in the Robotics Module. They have been experimenting with building small robots and integrating an ultrasonic sensor into the design.
After building the robots, the students then designed an area containing various objects to explore the capabilities and limitations of the sensor. Using their data students then plotted the limitations of the sensor’s detection range and scaled the range to a plot on a smaller piece of paper.
Students worked in collaborative groups to discuss the best protocol to use, peer review each other’s designs and test their robots.
