Curriculum and Robots for STEM, Physical Science, Engineering, Computer Science, Coding, Mechatronics, Electronics, and Robotics programs Grades 7-8 - Middle School.
Reinforce Physical Science and Math while teaching Electronics and Coding with the Boe-Bot Robot and Exploring Robotics with Electronics Curriculum.
Turn-Key, active, online, hands-on learning.
Now any math, science, or technology teacher can teach with fun robots! No engineering or programming experience required; just a few hours of online training with technical support available when you need it.
Great for middle school physical science, elective courses, makerspaces, after school programs, robot merit badges, and entry-level course for STEM, Coding, Electronics, Engineering, Mechatronics, or Technology programs.
Use to teach Nature of Energy, Velocity, Force, Unbalanced force, as well as Electronics principles - circuits, flow of electricity, resistance, capacitance, light waves, sound waves, electromagnetic waves, microcontrollers and more.
3D models provide step by step instructions for Hands-on robot building activities.
Video presentations for quick comprehension of mechanics, electronics, and engineering concepts.
Simulation of robot with 3D CAD.
Flexible lesson plans with worksheets and quizzes for 18, 36, or more weeks.
Online lessons can be viewed on tablets or other devices. Windows computer is required to program the robot. (This is a great use for older desktop or laptops).
Students work alone or in teams of 2 or 3. Students are actively engaged in lab activities with this package. They assemble, program, and control the Boe-Bot robot from Parallax.com (one of the most popular educational robots in the world).
Basic language is a great entry to text-based coding. Teaches concepts of control, conditions, loops, variables, functions, and more with a fun robot.
SELF-PACED Curriculum Features:
24 Video presentations with over 13 hours of exciting videos that teach about robots in real world, technology history, systems, motors, sensors, ROVs, and much more!.
Activities with Worksheets and Videos to accompany the Parallax Boe-Bot provide an introduction to each chapter and 3D models with step by step instructions on how to assemble the robot and place electronic components in the breadboard.
Code-Assist software to help students learn programming commands and avoid typing errors.
Videos provide electronics background information about resistors, breadboards, schematics, input and output, and power flow.
