3rd grade Robotics students started getting hands-on engineering experience this week. First, they watched a brief portion of a video where a real Robotics Engineer talked about what engineers do, how they approach problems, and how they use teamwork. Then they learned how to find and follow their Lego NXT building instructions from our class robotics website (aka the “Robot Command Center“).
Then the students were paired up and began shopping for their needed Lego parts and started building their first robots. We plan to finish building these initial robots next week.
