Students are Robotics Engineers during this high-tech hands-on experience! They first learn about the history of robotics, what real robots do, and how robots help humans accomplish tasks easily, efficiently and safely. Robotic arms demonstrate different methods of control by using hydraulic pressure, gears and motors, and even computer programming. Your engineers will not want to leave once they engage their imaginations while experimenting with modular robotics in small groups! By using critical thinking and trial and error, students discover the endless wonders of how robots can be designed for almost every function.
Each show is designed for no more than 25 students. The presenter will need a small table to set up the robotic arms, laptop computer and robotics materials. The children need chairs at tables large enough to accommodate 8-10 students. Presentations can be done in the classroom, media center, or cafeteria and the presenter must set up and stay in one room while the children rotate between classes/groups.
